Beef Barley Dog Biscuits

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons parsley
2 cups beef broth/juices — from leftover stew
2 cups barley flour
3-4 cups rye flour

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, combine olive oil (extra-virgin olive oil is more expensive, but lower grade olive oils are blended with other vegetable oils that may contain corn or soy), and parsley. Heat beef broth and add to the olive oil mixture. Stir in barley flour and let cool until lukewarm – or cool enough to work with. Gradually blend in rye flour, adding enough to form stiff dough. Transfer to a floured (rye flour) surface and knead until smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Shape dough into a ball and roll to 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter of your choice or cut into small squares. Transfer to un-greased baking sheets, spacing them about 1/4-inch apart. Gather up scraps, roll out again, and cut additional biscuits.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and turn over. Bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides. After you finish baking all batches of biscuits, turn off the oven, spread all the biscuits in one baking pan and set them in the oven to cool for a few hours or overnight. The extra time in the oven as it cools off helps make the treats crunchier.

Should the parsley be fresh or dried? Thanks

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
