Amaranth w/ Apples

Amaranth with Apples and Walnuts

1 cup amaranth
3 cups milk (any variety--I prefer skim cow's milk, but have made it with soy, hemp, coconut and almond milk before with good results)
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black strap molasses
1 tsp. ground cinnamon (or more-- I like a lot!)
1 or 2 apples cored and chopped (with skin on)

Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook on low for 30 to 35 minutes, until amaranth is soft and milk is all absorbed. Sweeten to taste with maple syrup or agave nectar. Sprinkle ground flax seed over it if you like, and serve with a little milk or yogurt.
