2 1/2 cups apple juice or water
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups couscous
pinch sea salt


1 cup water
1/4 cup barley malt
pinch sea salt
3 cups berries
2-3 Tbsp kuzu or arrowroot, diluted in 3-5 Tbsp water

	Place juice or water in a pot.  Add salt and raisins. Bring to a
boil. Cover, reduce flame to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes. Add
couscous, cover, simmer 3-5 minutes. Turn off flame and let sit, covered,
10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove couscous from pot and place in glass
or ceramic cake pan.
	Place water, barley malt, salt, and berries in a saucepan and
bring to a boil. Reduce flame to low and add diluted kuzu, stirring
constantly to prevent lumping. Simmer 2-3 minutes and remove from flame.
	Press couscous firmly into pan and pour topping over cake,
spreading evenly. Allow to cool before serving.
