Add the barley groats together with the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes. Dilute with the hot apple juice and cook on a little over medium heat. Continue to dilute with apple juice.

Step 4

Set the fried pine nuts aside and fry the mushrooms in the same pan. When I fry mushrooms, I always fry in a dry pan first. When the mushrooms have lost some liquid, I add butter, salt and pepper and turn down the heat.
