Jesus Trail Mix

Grain, especially wheat, was the base of the first century diet, and toasted whole grain traveled well. Adding almonds to the grain results in a complete protein combination. I’ve included raisins for a bit of a sugar kick and because raisins would have been plentiful in first-century Galilee.

Trail mix base:
2 parts toasted wheat berries*
1 part raisins (purple or white)?
1 part almonds

*To toast the grain, heat 1/2 tsp oil for each 1/2 grain to be used. When the oil is hot, add grain and stir constantly over medium-low heat for about five minutes. Add salt to taste, and cool grain by spreading flat on a plate.

Optional add-ins/substitutions: chopped, dried figs, apricots, or dates; walnuts; toasted sesame seed; toasted pearl barley.
