Preheat oven to 275º(F). Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment or wax 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 and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts and brown sugar mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Spread the granola onto cookie sheets and bake 1 hour until golden and crunchy. When the mixture comes out of the oven, it is still very pliable. You may choose to add dried fruit as a finishing touch at this time. When granola is cooled completely, store in an airtight container.
