How to make Swiss Gerstensuppe (Barleysoup)
So.. my mum asked if I could make the saturday-lunch. Ususally we eat not a big lunch.. just some soup or a salad. So I decided to make a popular Swiss-Soup! We call it "Gerstensuppe" - Barleysoup! It's veeery good and we eat it a lot here in Switzerland during the cold winter! Enjoy your meal!
Butter a pan and wait till it's warm.
Add the field garlich, carrots, celery and bacon bits. Steam for 5 minutes.
Add the pearl barley and steam it in short.
Add the water.
Add the bouillon and let it cook. Boil the heat down, cover and let it cook for 30 min.
Take the veal-tootsie out and flavor the soup and serve. Enjoy.
