muesli
To make this muesli you will need 750g (26½ oz) of rolled oats, 100g (3½ oz) each of roasted almonds, roasted peanuts, dry-roasted cashews and pepitas, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon each of ground cloves, freshly grated nutmeg and salt, 3 tablespoons each of honey and vegetable oil, and 50g (1¾ oz) each of currants, raisins, dried apricots and prunes.

Preheat oven to 180℃ (350℉). Roughly chop the nuts and combine well with the oats, pepitas and spices. Heat the oil and honey until runny (in a saucepan or the microwave) and add to the dry ingredients, stirring well. Spread into 2 roasting pans and bake for approximately 30 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes and then every 5 minutes until toasted and changing in colour. Dice the fruit and add to the cooled dry ingredients. Store in airtight jars.
