Cut the onion into fine cubes and sauté in olive oil. Add the pearl barley and sauté for a short time.

Just before the barley is cooked, fold in the Speck Alto Adige PGI and cook along with the barley. Brown the apple in butter and add to the barley. Season with salt and pepper and add in some chives.
