    1/2 cup      barley grain
    1/2 tbs      sesame seeds (not optional)
      1 pinch    coriander seeds
      4          dried apple rings
      1 sprinkle shoyu (optional)
  1 3/4 cups     water
 Being a nice sweet grain, barley goes well with dried apples. The other
 ingredients are necessary to keep if from tasting too bland or too much like a
 dessert. Skip this one if you have a problem with sesame seeds.
 Wash and then roast the barley until it's evenly browned. Washing and roasting
 are important with barley as they get rid of the powdery stuff on it which
 otherwise turns into rubber. Cut the apple rings into small pieces and pressure
 cook them with the barley, coriander and water for 45 minutes.
 While that's cooking, dry roast the sesame seeds so as to maximize their
 flavor, which will probably take less than five minutes.
 Combine the barley with the sesame seeds when they're done, and add a tiny
 amount of shoyu to taste.
