Real Oats 101 by Doug

To begin, go to any reputable food market that carries steel cut oats.  Look for them in the bulk food area.  Whole Foods has organic that are great.  Just bag and tag.  (Use two bags just to be safe…trust us!)

McCann’s is what we started out on

In a pot, put in 3 cups of water and a pinch of salt (Kosher is best).  Place lid and let it come to a boil.  Add your steel cut oats, turn off heat, and replace lid.  Now walk away, watch a movie, open a bottle of wine or go to bed.  I like to make them at night, let them set and in the morning they are ready to heat and eat

Add what you like: Raisins, Craisins, Brown Sugar…the list goes on and on and on.  You control your Oat Destiny!

Amy likes her oats with craisins, brown suger and almond extract

Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for a couple days.  They get a little stale and slimy after more than three days or so.
