Melt butter in large skillet with tight fitting lid.
Add onions and saute until barely tender.

Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer covered 35 to 45 minutes.
Fold in apples and parsley.
Heat through or refrigerate before cooking barley.
To serve, return mixture to boil; reduce heat and simmer until liquid is absorbed—20 to 30 minutes—and barley is tender.
