Oatmeal

OATMEAL

An unctuous, warm, stick to your ribs breakfast cereal, made from an easy recipe that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and eaten with a vartiety of spices, fruits, nuts or just brown sugar.

With all this going for it, why did I avoid oatmeal like the plague when I was little…  I mean to the point that you couldn’t force the spoon down my throat! I think it came down to the texture, which with years and maturity…. I have come to like.

A few TIPS for making oatmeal :

  • add the  salt at the end for a creamy texture
  • the finer the oats the faster they cook
  • heat your bowls
  • serve with warm milk
  • Scottish superstition – stir clockwise with your right hand to avoid evil
