"ATW80DS" - Greenland Suaasat

Reindeer meat is one of the staples of Greenland along with seal. Living in Greenland requires a special diet to stay healthy and help them face the challenges of weather. The distance between fellow Greenlander's living in the small clusters of cities and villages dotting the Northern most island in the Arctic can be tough. The high meat content (marine mammals, fish, game, birds) of a typical Greenlander's diet provides the physical endurance needed to live year-round in the remote climate.
1 pound reindeer meat, cubed  (we used venison)
2  quarts water
2 cups pearl barley
3 onions, chopped 
1 cup sliced wild mushrooms
2 carrots, sliced 
1 cup cherries, dried
1 lemon, zest only
1 sprig rosemary, chopped
1 sprig thyme, chopped
1 bundle sage, chopped
sea salt and black pepper
Pour the water into a large pot and add the meat (as is), the vegetables, the cherries, the mushrooms, the salt and pepper to taste and the herbs and bring to a simmer, simmering on medium heat until tender about 1 hour.
Add barley and the lemon zest, check and correct the seasoning and cook until the soup is thick about 30 minutes.
