The barley soup, which is cooked a little differently in the whole of South Tyrol, is one of the most popular soups of the Ladin tradition. The rich soup, which is prepared with vegetables, cereals (barley) and meat, tastes particularly good on cold days.
100g of barley
100g bacon or smoked pork shin-bone
1.5 liters of water
a small onion, a small carrot, a small potato, a celery stalk, a little salt, chives for seasoning.
Boil the meat, the bacon and the barley in a large pot for about two hours (approx. 2 l of water). Later add the vegetables (cut in cubes).
Before serving, cut the meat in small pieces and add it to the soup.
