this first time i had this, a young cook from angel valley in arizona prepared it for breakfast. i've been recreating it ever since.
1 c. water
dash of salt
1 tsp tsp fresh ginger
1 T. dried cranberries
1 T. sliced almonds
2 T. milk or cream
1/2 c. oats (Silver Palate's 'thick & rough' is terrific)
Put salt, ginger & water in a sml saucepan and bring to boil. Add cranberries, almonds & oats. Reduce heat to low, simmer until oats have thickened, about 8 minutes, and turn off burner. Stir, and spoon into bowl, top with milk and honey to taste. Serves one, double recipe as needed.
*You can also mix ingredients in a bowl, bake 325 for 40 minutes. Cool & slice into snack bars.*
