Canned Love

muffinsI change over the tinned food in my earthquake kit a couple times a year. So what to do with canned fruit? I pulled out one of my Granny’s recipes. She used to make these carrot pineapple muffins for me every time I came for a visit. She’s been gone for some time now, but it was so lovely to stir some memories by reading her neat handwriting and baking these delicious muffins. I cut down on the oil and sugar, and used a whole can of pineapple. I went a little heavier on the flour, and mixed in about half the quantity in whole wheat plus added a 1/2 cup of wheat germ. So you can play with the recipe. But the one below is direct from my dear Granny who I miss very much.
