Dried Nectarine, Plum and Melon Granola

Yesterday at the farmers’ market, I found the following treasures:

Red Russian Kale and Spring Onions

Sliced Almonds and Dried Nectarines, Plums and Melon

Cheddar Goat Cheese

I made granola with the dried things, and I am planning on cooking the kale and onions in some broth and poaching eggs in it for dinner.

This was my third time making granola, and I deviated a bit from the recipe in my previous granola post.  This batch went approximately like this:

Dried Nectarine, Plum and Melon Granola

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • approximately 3 cups of chopped dried fruit: nectarines, plums and melon

Stir together everything but the fruit and put on a pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionaly.  Cool on a rack for 45 minutes, stirring several times.  Add dried fruit.

This granola was good, as it always is, especially when eaten with yogurt at the table in our back yard.  However, this was not my favorite fruit combination.  Last time, I used dried mangos and cranberries, which was better.  Regardless, I am obsessed with how easy it is to make really tasty granola.  And a little bit shocked at how quickly it disappears.
