1 cup Honey
1.5 cup Apples
1 cup Heavy Cream
2 cups Rolled Oats
1.5 tablespoons Sugar

Pre-soak the raisins so they are soft. To pre-soak, put your raisins in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let it steep for 10 to 15 minutes, and then strain the fruit and discard the water.

Peel and grate the apple on a mandolin. Chop the hazelnuts. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and cover. Soak the mixture overnight in the refrigerator. Garnish with fresh berries.

    No wonder it is so good, and served in such a small cup. No, I won’t be making it, will just enjoy it every morning on every cruise!
    Thanks for the ingredient list. Won’t be taking two!

    Fantastic! I had never had Swiss Style Muesli before…so glad it was this last week on the Oosterdam trip o Alaska. Can I get a recipe for the really great Red Rice Patty and Asparagus served to us at the luncheon held for repeat mariners? It was so delicious! Thanks again for a voyage not forgotten!

    Thank you! A portion of this and an Egg Benedict special of the day and I am in heaven or at least cruising.
