It’s getting to be that time of year again when we are thinking about Chanukah, Christmas and Winter Solstice. Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, you might find this recipe a handy one to have among your cookbooks.
I have been refining my granola recipe for the past 30 years. My family and friends like it so much that I sometimes send them care packages. If you feel like saving on your budget, you might consider this as a delicious holiday present. It is easy to make and lasts a long time, so it can be sent in regular mail. Enjoy!
