I love my crockpot. Nothing better then smelling the aroma of supper cooking on a cold day…or a day where there are evening activities and not much time to cook. Hmmm come to think of it any day I smell supper simmering away is a good day!
This casserole is surprisingly delightful. We love barley and this dish a perfect accompaniment to pork or ham….although husband indicated it would be great with ice cream!
As this is a kid friendly recipe consider getting the kids involved with helping…they can dice, slice and toss into the slow cooker!
- 2-3 cups orange juice
- 1/3 cup barley
- 1/4 cup thompson style raisins sliced

- 1/4 cup chopped dates
- 1 apple peeled, cored and sliced
- 3 tbsp chopped pecans
- Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours. Serve warm!
