It isn't often that I eat cereal for breakfast, but recently, when a new cookbook arrived at my door, the granola recipe jumped right out at me. How hard could it be? This simple preparation will inspire you to make your own combinations of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. It's easy, takes only an hour on low heat to bake and kept in sealed glass jars, will keep for quite awhile. They will be fresher than store bought, and cheaper as well. Now my husband's daily morning breakfast ritual just got a little more interesting and crunchy.
This recipe is with cherries, blueberries and currants, but you could easily add your own faves. If you like it a little stickier and clumpier, add honey or brown sugar.
