This recipe is nothing short of delicious. I was given this recipe from a new friend that I met recently playing Mah Jongg. It's made with Matzoh Farfel and lots of yummy dried fruit and nuts. My friend Caryn, who already made some for her family was so sweet to drop off a whole bag of mixed dried fruit so I can test this recipe. Thank you Caryn! I hope you try it too because it really is amazing. If you don't have Matzoh Farfel, you can just take sheets of Matzah and place in a large Ziplock bag and crush the using a rolling pin.
1 1/2 Cups Matzoh Farfel
1 Cup Almonds, Coarsely chopped
1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) Butter
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Mixed Dried Fruit ( I used Apricots, Prunes, Figs and Apples)
Preheat Oven to 325 F. Spread Farfel on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-20 minutes, tossing several times until it's very lightly toasted (watch carefully)
Meanwhile in a 2-quart saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, honey and salt. Bring to a simmer for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Place the Farfel, Nuts and Dried Fruit in a large bowl and drizzle the Brown Sugar/Honey mixture over top. Toss until Farfel, Nuts and Dried fruit is coasted well.
Spread mixture back on to cookie sheet and bake in a 350 F oven for another 10-20 minutes stirring frequently to prevent burning, until Granola is golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool. Once Granola is cool you can store in an air tight container to store or just take a handful and Enjoy!
