In a huge ball jar. Like, that's 4.5 cups of granola in there. It's orangey and nutty. But I don't use any dried fruit. I think it tends to get hard, so I add that as needed when I'm eating the granola, which is immediately and often.
This is how I do it, in case you want the experience firsthand.
Adjust oven rack to middle position, and heat oven to 275 degrees.
Coat a 9-by-13-ish cookie sheet with cooking spray or rub some oil around on it.
Mix "the dry." (Sebastian's part)5 cups oats
4 Tbs. brown sugar
½ tsp. or a few shakes of salt; the salt makes a difference, so do add some.
¾ cup of nuts, one or two kinds, almonds, walnuts, or pecans work well
A couple dashes of cinnamon to taste.
Bring to simmer the following. (Boiling oil? Yup, that's Mommy's part)½ cup maple syrup (This does not need to be fine, grade A, pure, prayed over by monks. It actually tastes great if you use Eggo type.)
6 Tbsp. corn oil
2 Tbsp. water
a blurp of almond extract
the zest of one orange
Pour mixture onto prepared pan. Pinch it all over to make clusters. (This is a particularly good job for the 3-year-olds out there. Those who have washed their hands.)
Bake for 30 minutes. Check. Continue to bake until golden brown, about 5-10 minutes longer. Check several times; it gets completely cooked all of a sudden and then can burn. Let cool and pry up with a big "flipper."
Do I have to say it can be stored for a couple weeks? That never, ever happens here.
