Large Batch (serves 9 to 10 persons):
3 cups cracked grain cereal mix
10-1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup plus 2-1/2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, whey, or Kombucha

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

raw milk or homemade nut milk
drizzled raw honey
Put water, cracked grain cereal mix, and acid in a pot of the appropriate size. Cover and let soak overnight, or for a minimum of 7 hours.
Add cinnamon and stir in. On the stove-top over high heat, and stirring constantly to prevent lumps, bring the contents to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Keep stirring for about 5 minutes, until pretty thick. Add other desired ingredients, such as coconut, nuts, raisins and/or dates. Cover and let cook until quite thick and spoonable. Turn off heat.
Spoon into bowls and garnish as desired.
Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Warm up leftovers in a pot on the stove-top. Add up to a cup of filtered water. Use medium-high heat and a spatula to break up the cereal. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Turn temperature to low or off when the cereal has reached your desired temperature.
