Granola

4 cups oats
1/2 cup wheat germ*
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup almond pieces
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup olive oil
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup honey

In medium bowl, mix wet ingredients together. In large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well.

Pour onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 250 degrees and continue to cook until lightly browned. Remove from oven. When cool, store in airtight container.

*NOTE: For homemade wheat germ, grind wheat with grinder at a coarse setting. Sift through a small mesh strainer, allowing flour to fall into a bowl. What remains in the strainer is the germ. Save flour for other uses.

Beef Broth

After cooking a Sunday roast, save 1/2 of the broth. Put in refrigerator for about 24 hours till the fat rises to the top of the broth. Skim off all the fat and place 1 cup of broth into individual freezer bags. Freeze until needed.

Use for gravy, soups, and rice pilaf.
