1 1/2 cups whole grain (use a mixture or just one type; rye, wheat, hulled barley, hulled oats, quinoa, amaranth, etc.; use gf if necessary)
1 tsp. salt
4 cups water
Place in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Meanwhile turn crock pot on high. When crock pot is hot, pour grain, salt and water into crock pot. Cover immediately and reduce heat to low. Cook overnight.
1 cup chopped, dried fruit (use an assortment: peaches, pears, prunes, apricots)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/2 tsp. coriander
Soak dried fruit overnight in plenty of water to cover. About 15 minutes before serving, add the soaked fruit, soak water, raisins, dates, and coriander. Stir.
Serve with granola and peaches.
Note: This recipe may look complicated but it really isn’t. If you make it often, it can be simplified by chopping several batches of fruit at a time and packaging them in separate packages.
