I haven't had Bircher Muesli since I was a kid. It was invented by a Swiss health expert in the early 1900s. The kind I remember came in a box like regular cereal, but with dried apple, not fresh. I loved the boxed kind, freshly made is even better! (Overnight soaking time is not included in the prep.)
