Recipe Ingredients for stovetop granola

3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. cinnamon or coriander
1/4 cup light oil (sunflower, etc.)
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup dried currants

Recipe Directions for stovetop granola

  1. Use a large, heavy skillet, at least 10 inches round, with high sides. (If you don't have a skillet this big, use a smaller one and prepare granola in two batches. Or use a wok, which works great!).

  2. Into the cold skillet place the oatmeal, nuts, sesame seeds, coconut, and cinnamon. Mix well.

  3. Blend the oil, syrup, and vanilla together in a cup. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients in the skillet, stirring well to blend.

  4. Turn the heat under the skillet to medium high. Toast the mixture, stirring frequently, until the oats and nuts are crispy and browned. The sesame seeds will start to "pop" and the maple syrup will smell like burnt sugar --- be careful not to let the mixture burn.

  5. Toasting will take no more than five to seven minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the dried fruits. Let the granola rest in the skillet to cool.
