Thread Name: BS: New foods
Subject: RE: BS: New foods
We're into old foods again. Oatmeal - a favorite from my childhood that my grown children have finally decided is an okay food. I've used steel cut oats bought in bulk for several years, and for many more years before that I've used a 1 quart low-powered (47 watt) crock pot that I set up at night with the oats, raisins, cut up dates or figs, something like that, a little salt, and pour the boiling water over it and by morning it is cooked and creamy. And anything that might be sticking to the sides near the top of the cereal soaks off in the sink. A little brown sugar or honey and milk over the top. (If there is too much that is really crusty on the sides of the pot there probably isn't enough water in it.)
