      1 1/2 cup brown sugar
      1/2 cup water
      4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
      1 teaspoon salt
      8 cups rolled oats
      2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, or slivered almonds

      Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
      Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and reserve.
      Combine brown sugar and water in a 4-cup microwave proof glass measuring cup or bowl. Place in microwave on high for 5 minutes and cook until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from microwave, add vanilla extract and salt.
      In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, and brown sugar syrup mixture.

      Stir until thoroughly mixed. Spread the granola onto cookie sheets and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until golden and crunchy.
      When the mixture comes out of the oven, it is still very pliable. You may choose to add in dried fruit as a finishing touch at this time.

      When granola has cooled completely, store in an airtight container.
