It calls for 1 cup pearl barley to be used with 14 oz can chopped tomatoes, scant 3 cups vegetable stock, and 1 1/4 cups passata (sieved crushed tomatoes)..
Since I use something called Plump Soup Barley, which I buy at a local grain mill, I know I would not need all this liquid for one cup of it.
Does Pearl Barley expand that much to absorb all the liquid called for?

I have the book Jerusalem and love the recipes. So I am sure this recipe is correct,I am just curious about the pearl barley as I may need to tweak it with the type of barley I use. Thank you.
