Cook the Issue 2010: Barley Soup with Fennel, Leeks, and Bacon

This recipe is from the "What we're cooking now" section of Issue 109.  I used a bit more bacon than the recipe suggested, because I had a heel of Hungarian Bende Bacon to use up-- so this ended up being "Bacon Soup with Fennel, Leek, and Barley".  This soup is really delicious-- I wish that I had doubled the recipe, because we ate it all.  A tiny bit more barley (maybe 3Tbsp instead of 2) would be welcome.  The little spritz of lemon juice at the end really makes it.  

My husband spent the afternoon in our unheated garage, replacing the parking brake on his car-- so this soup was a perfect warming supper.   Along with a fresh baguette, dinner is served!
