Homemade Grapenut Cereal

My mother submitted this homemade grapenut cereal recipe.  It was originally given to her by her sister-in-law.  She says that during the dirty '30s, farmers were so cash poor they made their own grapenut cereal.  It has become one of the most popular recipes on our website.
