Being Finnish, we love rye cereal and breads so we had to find out how the hearty grain would flourish in a fruit dessert. The result was delicious and it is a great alternative to oats! Flavour of the baked crisp is only slightly different, but nutritional content is where rye achieves superiority. While both rye and oats are a good source of fibre, rye stands out as a good source of B vitamins, and has a greater content of protein, potassium, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, and Zinc.
Autumn, with its spectacular changing colours in nature and cooler days, always reminds us of getting cozy with a soft blanket and a good book. We welcome the harvest of fresh, juicy apples from local farms and even anticipate this annual event before summer ends. Our hearts are grateful for nature’s bounty as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving.
