This weekend Kate and Tom from Living the Frugal Life invited us to a seed share at Nitya and Jeff's Woodsong Hollow Farm. It was a wonderful afternoon that began with a very quaint farmer's market, which was followed by an amazing potluck, and for the remainder of the afternoon we talked about, shared, and ordered seeds.
There really cannot be enough said about the richness and kindness of character of those in the gardening community.
Our food contribution was granola. We got the recipe from Meg's mom—Thanks Laurel.
In a large bowl, toss together:
6 cups oats
8 oz sliced almonds
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped apricots
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter. Stir in 1/2 cup honey. Pour over oat mixture and toss to distribute. Spread granola onto parchment-lined baking pan (nonstick or greased will do as well). Bake, stirring occasionally, until oats are toasted and sugar begins to caramelize, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely and put into airtight containers.
