Barley, a type of grain, can be used as a substitute for rice and other grains, or it can make for wonderful dishes on it’s own.
However, barley is best used fresh, and can go bad quite quickly.
The solution for many foods is to freeze them, which preserves them for prolonged periods of time.
But what about barley? Can you freeze cooked barley?
Frozen barley, sealed in an airtight plastic bag, should keep for anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on how well you’ve sealed it.
This allows you to enjoy your favorite barley dishes anytime you want, and not have to prepare it fresh each time.
