This is my mother's recipe for a good healthy breakfast. It is essentially a fresh, do-it-yourself muesli, but she was making it long before anyone in England had heard of muesli!

One large cooking apple, preferably Bramley; grated
Two handfuls of sultanas or raisins
Two handfuls of cashew nuts; grated fine
One tablespoon of runny honey
A good splash of orange juice or lime juice

Grate the apple into a bowl, then add the grated cashew nuts and other ingredients. Stir well. It can be prepared the night before, in which case cover the bowl with cling-film and leave in the fridge. It will keep for 2 days.

This is enough for 4. Because it has a strong flavour, serve each helping with an equal quantity of oats, plus milk, and cream or yoghurt to taste.
