"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Preheat oven to 275. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper (or grease the sheets well).

Combine brown sugar and water in a 4 cup microwave proof glass bowl. Cook in microwave until sugar dissolves. Add vanilla and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts and brown sugar mixture. Stir until thoroughly coated. Spread granola onto cookie sheets and bake 45 minutes - 1 hour or until golden and crunchy.

When it comes out of the oven it will be very pliable - you may want to add the dried fruit at this point. When it has cooled completely, store in airtight container - will last awhile.
