My home smells of culinary delights this afternoon. Cinnamon and honey waft from the dehydrator combined with the smell of curry from some lunchtime lentils and fresh baked bread in the oven. When I saw that I wasn’t going to finish my socks for St. Patrick’s Day I decided to raid my pantry, that is in a good way. As much as I love keeping a well stocked pantry and shopping in bulk there comes that time when you either pass an expiration date or see it quickly approaching.
With that in mind, I put some wheat berries in a pan to soak for three hours to make some Honey Wheat Berry Bread using a 40 pound bag of wheat I’ve had for a couple years. For my husband of the discerning tastebuds, I mixed up a batch of Basic White Honey Bread in a futile attempt to use of the forty pound bag of bread flour from Costco. What was I thinking when I bought that bag?
I then mixed up a batch of granola (using this recipe) to go in the dehydrator for three hours finishing off a canister of oats, a container of salt and several opened but half-used bags of almonds.
Do you have a favorite granola recipe? I’m always on the lookout for great recipes. What about bread recipes? Have any?
