A healthy sweet treat. Made as written, although using a little less water than what was called for as I did not wish to drain and did not want it to soupy. The mix of fruit with the light cinnamon is a great start to the day. My great grandfather always started his day with stewed fruit and eggs. We sprinkled granola on ours. Thanks for the post.
