This will put hairs on your chest. I never knew what that meant, but I do know that this will fuel you for the whole morning with energy to spare. I have certainly eaten enough bowls of porridge to know that the energy part is true, and I am pleased to tell you that, despite all the bowls of prridge I've consumed in my life, I don't have any hairs on my chest! This recipe does take quite a long time, so you might prefer to save it for a weekend when you want a leisurely start to the day, or to make it in a slow cooker overnight, ready for breakfast the next day.

½ cup barley
6 cups water
2 cups apple juice
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp ginger, grated
½ cup almonds, slivered and dry-roasted (optional)
¼ cup dried apricots, chopped
fresh fruit or stewed fruit compote to serve (see recipe list)

Rinse the oatmeal and barley, pour over enough cold water to cover and leave to soak overnight.

The next morning, drain the grains and put in a pan with the water, apple juice and sea salt.
Bring the porridge to the boil, stirring continuously, then reduce the heat and simmer for 35-40 minutes.
Stir the porridge regularly to ensure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
Once the majority of the liquid has been absorbed into the grain, add the ginger, almonds and apricots and continue to cook for a further 15 minutes or until the porridge reaches a fairly thick consistency.
Serve with fresh or stewed fruit.

Makes 4 servings (serve = without fruit)
