Oatmeal with dried cherries
Lovely Breakfast this morning Irish Oatmeal with dried Montmorency Cherries, Muscavado Sugar and cinnamon. Only problem with this recipe is remembering to soak the oats overnight. If you forget and want to make this in the morning, just make the oats according to the directions on the can and once ready to eat you are on step 3. For 4 servings, Step 1 Before you go to bed, put 1 cup of steel cut oats in a 3-4 qt saucepan and pour 2 cups of boiling water over them. Leave for about 10 minutes then cover and place in the fridge. Have a nice sleep. Step 2 Take pan out of fridge, add 2 more cups water and heat to boiling, stir a few times. Cover and heat on low for 20 minutes. Step 3 Add 1/4 cup or so of dried cherries to the pot, stir and cover. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Step 4 Serve up the oatmeal with about 1 tablespoon of muscavado brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of cereal cream (half n half) and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
