1 cup (250ml/8 fl oz) apple juice, warmed
2 green apples, grated
1 cup (250g/8 oz) thick natural yoghurt
½ cup slivered almonds
honey, to serve


Place the oats and apple juice in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand for 30 minutes or until the oats are softened. Stir in the grated apple. To serve, divide the yoghurt between 4 serving glasses, top with the oat mixture, almonds and honey.

rhubarb and vanilla preserve


250g (8 oz) rhubarb, trimmed and chopped
1 cup (220g/7¾ oz) sugar
1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped (or 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste)
2 tablespoons water


Place the rhubarb, sugar, vanilla bean and seeds and water in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
