Orange Dessert Grains

6 oranges

2 cups cooked oat groats, barley

or quinoa, warm or at room


1/4 cup orange marmalade

2 tablespoons orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier or Sabra


1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Grate the rind of one of the oranges into a mixing bowl. Peel the oranges, section them and cut the sections into small bite-size pieces, working so any juice runs into the mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

4-6 servings

Fall Fruit Curry

1 cup bouillon

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon dessert spice blend or cinnamon

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

2 tablespoons brown sugar, or to taste

2 pears, cored and cut in bite-size pieces

2 cups fresh or frozen peaches, cut in bite size pieces

1 cup fresh or canned pineapple, bite-size

1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries

cooked barley or other whole grains (optional)

Combine the bouillon, curry powder, dessert blend, ginger and brown sugar in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer about 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Add the fruits, cover and simmer until the fruits are soft and a little syrupy, about 20 minutes. Serve over whole grains or mix into grains if desired.
