Millet Raisin Cereal is an interesting change of pace for hot cereal lovers. Like rice, millet is a staple food of the Far East. It is easily digested because it is alkaline whereas most other grains are acidic.
1 cup hulled millet
1-1/2 cup water
1-1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 tablespoon apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Rinse the millet in warm water and drain. Place in a pot with water, juice, juice concentrate and raisins. Heat to boiling, then lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
Remove from the heat, add cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Cover and let sit for 45 minutes. Serve hot as is, or with a dollop of yogurt.
Recipe makes 4 cups (4 servings).
