Considerations

Any type of dried fruit, or a mixture or dried fruits can be used.

This can also be served with milk, honey, or maple syrup.

Alternatively this can be made by bringing the mixture to a boil, reducing the heat and simmering for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally until grains are tender.
