Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.



desserts, vegetarian

1 cup pearl barley cold water
1 small piece cinnamon bark
1 cup granulated sugar
1 ground cinnamon
1 blanched almonds
1 blanched hazelnuts
1 chopped walnuts
1 sultanas (white raisins)
1 rose water (optional)

Serves: 8-10 Cooking time: 2-1/2 hours Wash barley well, place in a bowl and cover with 4 cups cold water. Soak overnight. Next day put barley, soaking water and cinnamon bark into a heavy pan and bring to the boil. Boil gently, uncovered, until barley is very soft and porridge-like in consistency -- about 2 hours. Remove cinnamon bark. Stir in sugar and cook for further 10 minutes. Turn into individual bowls and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Decorate with nuts and sultanas. Serve warm or chilled with additional nuts and sultanas, and rose water for adding to individual taste if desired. * Source: The Complete Middle East Cookbook - by Tess Mallos * Typed for you by Karen Mintzias
