Frumenty update

I've just done a batch with some extra additions. Try sauteing a pan of mushrooms and onions, cut fairly small and throwing it in the pot with the barley together with a handful of pine nuts.

Also, I substituted rosehip syrup for sugar...mmmm...

And a caution, be very careful not to allow the mixture to stick to the bottom of the pan, a danger when the liquid level is low. Stir more often as it comes closer to being done.

An excellent Lent meal.

Unless you're one of those weird Super Lent people who eschew dairy and eggs and all that, in which case, enjoy your daily handful of gravel.
