New job. New city. I came into this position with a good grasp on the German language. I wasn't going to let it affect me anymore.
What is this language that they're speaking here exactly? I'm having trouble understanding!
I hadn't really thought accents and dialects would be a problem... until now...
Get over it. At least you speak the base language of whatever it is they're speaking...
This recipe is from the only other American I ever met in Bremerhaven. She got this recipe from her mother and I have to say, it's a keeper!!!
I'm all for making things yourself from scratch (obviously). It's so you know there aren't any surprise ingredients that you don't really want in there. It's so you know all the ingredients are healthy, natural and to your liking.
It's like your own custom made product! What could be more perfect?!
Granola is the best self-made / custom-made product. You can choose any nut, dried fruit or extra topping you want!
You can choose any type of sweetener that suits your needs.
My choice? Honey... perfect in every way...
7 cups whole oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup walnuts
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups raisins
Make this ingredient list your own! Substitute dried cranberries for the raisins or maybe even dried blueberries. Maybe you don't like coconut. Omit it completely! It's possible you don't find wheat germ. No problem!
This recipe is all yours...
Mix all of the dried ingredients together, except for the raisins (or any other dried fruit). Add the wet ingredients and spread evenly onto a baking sheet. Bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 and a half hours, tossing once.
Let cool and add the raisins (or dried fruit).
Tip: If you let the granola cool on the baking dish, it will create the clumps and not become so loose.
