Spiced Rye Berry Cereal with Brazil Nuts
1 cup water
1 TBSP raisins
4 Brazil nuts, crushed
1 cardamom pod, seeds removed and ground
1 all spice berry, ground
1 tsp fresh mint, minced
1/2 TBSP clarified butter
Bring the rye berries to a boil, add the raisins, nuts and spices and cook on a high simmer for 30 minutes or until the rye berries are tender, yet chewy. Stir in the mint, than add the honey. Add the butter and give the mixture a swirl, finish with a little cream or milk.
I enjoyed my cereal with Floriole Cafe's lemon lavender pound cake, drizzled in honey. Bon appetit to me!
