Reviews for Apricot Barley Casserole
"I've made this recipe several times for family and moose hunters.It was loved by everyone."
"This didn't turn out that well for me. Some in my family liked it, others didn't. When I made this it got very dried out, yet was very sweet. I hope others have better luck with it."
