If you've read my blog for very long, you might recall that I LOVE oatmeal. When I was a young teen, my sweet grandmother gave me a copy of An Old-Fashioned Girl, by Louisa May Alcott.
The main character, "Fannie," is a wonderful young girl and I was fascinated by her. She ate oatmeal for breakfast every day. That is why I learned to love oatmeal. :)
Here is my "new" way to make it:
Real Oatmeal - 2 servings
1 cut oat groats (that is just the oat grain, not rolled or steel cut or anything.)
1 Tablespoon whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon live whey
nice clean water
pinch of salt
Rinse your oats and place them in a stainless or glass bowl, covered with at least 2 inches of water. Add the whole wheat flour and whey. Stir together, cover and let it soak for 24 hours.
Drain in a colander and rinse well.
Put the oats, the salt and 2 cups of water in a crock pot and let it cook on low all night.
In the morning it will be ready to eat. It's very tender and nice.
I eat mine with butter and a little maple syrup.
I think you'd like it too if you enjoy oatmeal!
Leftovers can be eaten on subsequent days, but also make a nice addition to meatloaf or bread.
