Issue 3 - March 1972
Barley Soup
One of the great mistakes of the alternative press is that it usually ignores certain aspects of the body.

Anyone who reads even a small cross section of them will be aware that dope and sexuality are their main physical concern.

Lots of people haven't got much bread (in both meanings) and I think that it is time for a collection of cheap recipes to take their place. So here's the first - we'll be carrying one in each issue.

Barley Soup

2 large onions
1lb of any vegetables in season (mixed)
1 quart stock or water
2oz fat
3oz barley
seasoning to taste
Melt fat in saucepan, add finely chopped vegetables and fry for ten minutes. Add the stock or water and the barley and simmer for two hours. Season to taste and serve.
Should serve 3-4 people.

Remember that all food is cheaper from a market than it is either from the corner shop or a supermarket.
