Strawberry-Raspberry Granola Clusters—A Valentine’s Day Surprise.
February 14, 2023

In some households, you might be on shaky ground if you give your spouse a box of granola on Valentine’s Day. A day known as The Feast of Saint Valentine calls for candlelight dining, chocolates, red roses, and if you go all out, a Valentine’s Day card that expresses all your love in one lovely sentence.

I checked off the dining category last night—Chef Glenn’s Ratatouille with a side of linguine. We had the leftovers for lunch today, so that counts, right? I’m rushing this newsletter out now so I can get to the store before they run out of roses.

Back to that granola. Not just any granola for my gal.

Dominique loves strawberries and raspberries, so I mashed and mixed them with granola for my Valentine’s Day experiment, which fortunately went well. And since we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, I added a little honey.

After dehydrating the mixture, the result is Strawberry-Raspberry Granola Clusters. They taste great on their own, but you can take it up a Valentine’s Day notch by pairing them with chocolate in a trail mix.

If you’re looking to cook up a little romance for your next hike, you’ll find the recipe on the updated Guide to Dehydrating Strawberries page.

Dominique and I wish you and your special hiking partner a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Freundliche Grüsse,

Chef Glenn & Dominique
