Ingredients
  1. Roast chicken carcass with some meat still left on
  2. 1 glass of wine (red or white, whatever you have to hand)
  3. 1 onion roughly chopped
  4. 2 carrots cleaned and chopped and 1 for reserve
  5. 2 gloves of garlic, chopped
  6. 200g of pearl barley
  7. 2000ml of water
  8. pinch of dried thyme
  9. pinch of dried chilli flakes (optional)
  10. Freshly ground salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Place the onion, garlic and carrots in the slow cooker and put the chicken carcass in on top
  2. Cover with 1500ml of the water, and add the wine
  3. Add a twist of salt and ground black pepper and the pinch of thyme
  4. Cook on high, for 8 hours, then add the remaining 500ml of water, and cook on low for a further 2 hours. I usually do this over night, and just turn it down to low first thing to let it finish.
  5. Drain the contents of the pan into a bowl or large jug, using a sieve to catch the bones and veg
  6. Pour the liquid back into the slow cooker pan (or at this point you can leave it to cool and freeze or refrigerate it, for use a later date)
  7. Pick through and take out any bits of meat that you want to add back to the stock and add them back to the pan
  8. Pour in the pearl barley and the reserved chopped other carrot
  9. Add a little more salt and pepper to taste and cook on high for 2 hours, then low for 2 hours.
  10. Serve or you can portion it out and freeze it.
  11. We like to add a little dried chilli flakes for heat, but you can skip this if you prefer not to.
