Purple Barley Cookies

A fascination with farming and quality grains leads the folks at Mediterra into some wonderful food adventures. One example: this cookie made with purple barley. The chemistry of cookie baking turns the anthocyanins contained in the grain into fascinating colors, while maintaining the rich, nutty flavor profile of the barley. Everyone at the TABLE studio loved tasting the results of this delicious sweet (but not too sweet) treat.
