Apple Barlotto - {Orzotto Di Mele}

Type: Rice
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 8 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 1/2 cups 592mlPearl barley
4 cups 948mlBrown Chicken Stock - (see recipe)
1/4 cup 49g / 1.7ozUnsalted butter
3 cups 438g / 15ozApples - cored, chopped fine, (large) and tossed with juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon 5mlPear grappa
1/2 cup 118mlTocai Friuliano, such as Bastianich
1/2   Mint, leaves removed and finely chopped
1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozFreshly-grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Recipe Instructions

Place the barley in a saucepan, add water to cover by 2 inches, and let soak, refrigerated, for 12 hours or overnight. After soaking, drain the barley and spread out on a baking sheet to dry.

Place the chicken stock in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

In a wide, high-sided pot, heat the butter over medium-high heat until it foams and subsides. Add 1/3 of the apple and saute for a few minutes, until it begins to soften. Add the barley and stir for 3 minutes over high heat.

Combine the grappa and wine, and stir into the pan with the barley. Add the Brown Chicken Stock, a little at a time, stirring constantly, allowing the barley to absorb the liquid to become firm and creamy, like risotto. This will take about 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, toss in the remaining apples, mint, and grated cheese and stir 2 more minutes over high heat. Serve immediately.
