what to do with barley malt?

I have a jar of barley malt that I bought for 1 teaspoon to make my own bagels (and I'm from NJ! What the hell was I thinking...) How long will this stuff last in the fridge and what can I use it for?

  1. I don't think it needs to be in the fridge. Is it a syrup or powder?

    1. Not sure how long it will last, but you can use some up in these delicious-looking rolls:

      You'll probably also find the detailed description (gives general ideas for how to use it) and related (detailed) recipes linked on this page helpful- sorry to say I can't speak from personal experience!

        1. The BBC Food Programme had a show recently on malt, , interesting info and a few ideas... as to lasting I'd imagine you've got quite a while...

          1. Have the same situation at my house right now. I've been using it in the same way that I would use honey or molasses. Also, pretty much any bread recipe seems to handle it fairly well.
