I promised these new convenient hot cereal breakfast meals for emergency preparedness and everyday use. I know...that promise came 2 weeks ago...and then pneumonia got the better of me and I tried to not over-do. Needless to say, you get them now. I don't think you'll mind waiting. If this is your first time visiting the blog you want to know all the safety on home vacuum packing...you'll need to read the post here. This is not home-canning. It is home vacuum packing for longer-term storage so there are some tips and tricks to know. However, the main thing is to remember to have fun! These are great for any day of the week and have been so helpful as I've recently had illness. They're simple enough that my 9 and 13 year old boys can make them. Don't ask my husband to boil water...he's still working on that. Grin.
The word I've heard back from all of you on the Peanut Butter Cup Cereal has been amazing!
Thank you for keeping me in the loop as you try the meals and offering me your suggestions and ideas! It not only makes me smile, but also reminds me why I do what I do!
I will of course, remind y'all that I under-sweeten the cereals. If you want them sweeter, test the recipe and adjust as needed.
I'm guest posting this Thursday on the Honeyville Farms Blog with some naturally sweetened low carb/glycemic breakfast cereals for those who have blood sugar issues or want some good alternatives for diabetics. It will be a great post! We have a diabetic in our home and most often don't do the extra sweet ones.
Now...where were we?
9 grain carrot cranberry orange glazed pudding!
This is made with 9 wholesome cracked grains coupled with carrots in a spiced amaretto buttery pudding with tart yet sweet sun-dried cranberries drizzled with a creamy orange glaze.
