Oh, Barley - how I love thee!

Let me count the ways-
1. You are wholsome and nutritious.
2. You are tasty and delicious.
3. You are equally good piping hot or chilled in a salad.
4. You are a great addition to soups and stews.

I love barley! And spelt, farro, wheatberries. I don't discriminate with my whole grains. But for some reason I HATE to cook them on the stove.

Has anyone attempted to cook any of these in a rice cooker? Same concept, right? I mean brown rice takes just as long if you simmer it on the stove.

But my rice cooker came with explicit instructions not to put anything but rice and water in it.

Someone say it isn't so....
