Many (well, 2) of you asked for the recipe for Donny's Pesach granola cereal. This recipe comes from his grandmother on his mother's side.
Pesach Granola Cereal
10-12 apples, grated
3 pounds (packages) of matzah – some whole wheat, some regular
¾ cup oil (hazelnut adds a nice flavor)
300-500 grams shredded coconut (if you use fresh, you need less because flavor is stronger. But then you need a hammer and an ice pick. And lots of time.)
2-3 tsp cinnamon
2-3 cups honey
Crush the matzah into small pieces. Mix in apples, coconut, oil and cinnamon.
Add honey in layers. First, spread a layer of matzah mixture on the bottom of a pan. Drizzle honey on top – don’t mix it in. Keep adding layers of matzah and honey. Bake at 180. It takes a few hours to cook completely. During the cooking process, “baste” the cereal – gently toss the cereal every 15-20 minutes as it cooks. This allows it to cook evenly.
Enjoy with milk! Dried cranberries are good also (add them when you eat, not during the cooking.)
Be warned: Making this before Pesach is very difficult because the children enjoy helping, but then you have to tell them they can’t eat any yet. Oof!
