Steel Cut Oatmeal

photos by me

we started off the day with a healthy breakfast. i bought these huge nectarines at the market yesterday and right now they are sitting on my window ledge ripening.

i am a big fan of steel cut oatmeal (harper loves it too!) i also eat my oatmeal REALLY thick. can you tell? i’m not sure why i prefer it that way, but i do remember eating it like this around the age of 6 or 7 in my grandmother’s kitchen in Ohio. i don’t use any sugar or milk. once in awhile i add some brown sugar. this morning we just added these juicy nectarines!

how do you eat your oatmeal?

steel cut oats by Wikipedia:
Steel-cut oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into only two or three pieces by steel rather than being rolled. They are golden in color and resemble small rice pieces.[1]
Steel-cut oats are also known as coarse-cut oats, pinhead oats, or Irish oats. This form of oats takes longer to prepare than instant or rolled oats due to its minimal processing, typically 15-30 minutes to simmer (much less if pre-soaked). The flavor of the cooked product is described as being chewier and nuttier than instant oats.
