Easy Peasy Muesli Mix

Easy Peasy Muesli Mix

– submitted by Cat Ingredients   5 cups chopped mixed dried fruit and nuts* 2 cups rolled oats 1 cup dessicated coconut 2 crushed oat or vita brits 175 g butter, melted 4 tablespoons maple syrup     Method   1. Preheat oven to about 160C 2.  Throw all the ingredients into a bowl and stir until well combined.     3.  Spoon mixture into a paper-lined baking tray and press gently with hands to flatten the mixture slightly.  It helps if you wet your hands with water first to avoid the mixture sticking.  Bake until golden, approximately 30 minutes.   * Use whatever dried fruits and nuts take your fancy for this muesli mix.  For my version I used dried pear and apricots, cranberries, sultanas, hazelnuts, pistachios, blanched almonds and macadamia nuts.      

March Wrap Up

March Wrap Up

  Isn’t March just a beautiful month?  The air starts to get a crisp feel to it in the evening, a rainbow of Easter eggs line the shelves at the shops to create a feast for the eye and let’s not kid ourselves, it brings us closer to the next much anticipated long weekend.  We think that after a busy February and just as eventful March, our team deserves this long weekend!  But before we start counting down the days, we thought we’d share some of the highlights from the month:    • A successful few days at the Fine Food Queensland Show  • Collaboration with The High Tea Party at their Brisbane event   • Another photo shoot – this time with the talented Brock McFadzean     • The launch of our nuts and baking essentials product range • The arrival of our images from Lost in Wishful Thinking       • The arrival of the latest, Italian issue, of Australian Gourmet Traveller complete with Mario’s family recipes for almond biscuits and zeppole in their The Sicilian Way feature  • And a hot cross bun.  Or two.    Now before we go, we just want to remind everyone that our free shipping offer for the month expires tomorrow.  If you haven’t done your Easter shopping or baking yet, our premixes and baking essentials range may just be what you need.  If you place your order by the 30th, we’ll do our best to get the orders shipped before the long weekend.
