For hearty flavorful oatmeal~ served sweet with maple syrup, butter and/or cream~ or savory, with herbs, a poached egg, and steamed greens!
- Cook over medium-high heat until the liquid boils. (Stir occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot.)
- Once it boils, turn heat down to low and cover for 15 minutes. Cracked oats, which cook much like steel cut oats, may take a few minutes longer. For a thinner porridge, add more water. For a softer texture, or quicker cook time, you can soak the oats overnight and cook in the morning.
For cooking in a microwave, use the same ratio of 1 part oats to 2 parts water, and cook in a microwave safe bowl on high for 1-2 minutes, to desired tenderness.
A customer who raves about our Rolled Oats uses the microwave method and adds raisins – claiming they keep the oatmeal from boiling over!
Serve with your favorite toppings like butter, maple syrup, a pinch of salt, nuts, fresh fruit, cream or milk~ however you desire. Our oats have a naturally creamy texture, and fresh sweet flavor cooked just in water, but substituting milk for water is also an option.
