Oatmeal Porridge

Ingredients

3 cups water
1 pch salt
1 cup steel-cut oats

Preparation

1
Bring water and salt to a boil in medium saucepan. Stir in oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the grains have absorbed most of the water. Remove from heat and serve immediately, or if a thicker texture is desired, cover saucepan and let sit for a few minutes.
2
Serving suggestion: Sweeten with a desired sweetner such as raw suger, granulated sugar, brown sugar or honey and drizzle with a small amount of milk, half-and-half or heavy cream.

Note: To toast steel-cut oats, place them in a preheated 300 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes. Cool and place any unused portion in a tightly covered container, storing in a cool place. Toasted oats cook in half the time.

Description: "The cut grain of steel-cut oats means they take longer to cook than rolled oats - but the distinctive texture makes it all worthwhile!
7
As an added treat, toss in some raisins, chopped dates or other dried or fresh fruits and nuts just before serving."
