2 cups cooked barley*
1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 pinch salt (if you didn’t salt barley during cooking process)
2 medium apples diced
¼ cup walnuts chopped
¼ cup dried cherries
¼ cup pure maple syrup
Milk, to serve (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pot heated over medium heat.
2. Stir frequently until warmed through, about 2-3 minutes.

*To prep barley, combine 1 cup barley with 3 cups water or stock in a saucepan, adding a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the barley is tender. Drain and cool until ready to use.
