I saw Savor on display at the library and was immediately drawn to it, a collection of “rustic recipes inspired by forest, field, and farm.” So far I’ve made the homemade yogurt, cornbread, and this birchermüesli, all with great success. If you’re craving simple mountain fare, this book is for you.
Closely adapted from Savor: Rustic Recipes Inspired by Forest, Field, and Farm
1 and 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons dried blackcurrants
3 tablespoons dried dates, cut into pieces
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons raw, unsalted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
1 cup orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
Fresh fruit and extra yogurt for serving
- Put all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir well. Refrigerate overnight in tupperware. Stir again in the morning before serving.
The blackcurrants are my own addition. The original recipe calls for unsweetened dried blueberries, 1/4 cup rye flakes (which I replaced with rolled oats), and freshly squeezed orange juice (I used store bought OJ with lots of pulp).
I often double the recipe so it lasts me a few days.
Such a beautiful website, so glad I’ve found you !
Awww, thanks Ariana!
I could eat bircher muesli all year too. It’s always such a calming way to begin the day, knowing that a nourishing breakfast is already waiting in the fridge. Hope you are well, Lu!
