Unfortunately no number of Jake's kisses could rescue my disastrous attempt at Ash-E-Jow, an Iranian barley soup. I wanted to use up the pearl barley that's been sitting in our cupboard for yonks and stupidly went with the first vaguely interesting recipe I found on the internet and only realised too late that it was a shite recipe. Not only did it leave out several key ingredients, it said it was for "1 serving". Now I knew it couldn't possibly mean for 1 person, but I did not think that what it actually meant was 1 serving for a family of 8. So now I have a pot of plop for 8 people. I've thrown half of it out and hope to rescue the remainder today.
