I was at the health food store the other day and discovered something called Job's Tears. They're a largish grain/seed looking thing... I actually thought that each grain looks like a cross between barley and a black-eye pea.

I inquired and the staff was pretty sure that it's gluten-free, so I decided pretty sure means "don't buy it yet". Researching online I find that they're not related to a barley at all and they seem to be gluten-free.

Anyone eat this? I thought if it cooks up somewhat soft but firm it would be a great side dish, or a barley replacer in stew.

Hi KathiSharpe, I have not tried Job's tears but I also would be interested in this as a side dish. The NIDDK lists it as an allowed food.
