    I don't make it exactly the same way twice, but here's a stab at it:

    BEEF BARLEY SOUP

    In a large stock pot

    2-1/2 pounds lean ground beef, browned and broken up
    2+ heaping tablespoons minced garlic
    11 to 12 ounces pearled barley
    10 to 11 cups water
    32 ounces canned tomatoes, diced, with liquid
    about 1 pound diced carrots (or more)
    several stalks diced celery (or more)
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 tablespoon dried basil
    1 tablespoon turmeric
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cloves
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Bring to boil. Simmer, covered, about one hour. Add about 3 cups chopped frozen vegetables and cook another 20 minutes. Add water as necessary.

    You can freeze or can the leftovers.

    I like a thick, flavorful soup. You can, of course, tone down or increase the spices to your liking.

    sounds like a good recipe, I'll give it a try thanks. I cook and add barley to a lot of canned soups as they tend to be light on substance other than water. I like cooking one meal to last several days in the crock.
