Have you ever wanted to learn how the Swiss prepare the warm, delicious and nutritious Muesli for breakfast?
Join us at the Bluebird Market Kitchen Show this week at 11:00 am to learn how to make homemade muesli. We are so excited to have Alice Versemann return to the Kitchen Show this Saturday, October 24th, 2009 for Girl Scout Day. Alice has worked for many years with the local Scouting programs and will give a cooking lesson on how to prepare warm and healthy breakfasts. These Girl Scouts will earn their cooking school badge when they attend and will learn to make Muesli and Granola, two whole grain cereals that can be prepared ahead of time and heated up for breakfast.
Alice will use local fruit in season…Georgia grown apples… in the Muesli.
The components are very basic for Muesli and Granola and can be adapted to seasonal Farmers’ Market produce.
Our Muesli contains 5 basic ingredients:
1-the cereal(such as oats and bran),
2-nuts & seeds(such as sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds),
3-fruit (such as apples, raisins, apricots, berries),
4-liquid (such as fruit juice, rice milk or yogurt), and
5-sweetener (honey, agave nectar, turbinado sugar–optional.)
Learn recipe tips from Alice Versemann and a variety of ways to prepare and enjoy this warm and healthy homemade cereal.
Tastings after the show.
