Oatmeal

I have been making oatmeal the Sally Fallon way for almost a year now, but today I tried my first variation on the simply delicious recipe. As the recipe (from Nourishing Traditions) dictates, I soaked two cups of organic rolled oats overnight in two cups of water. Then, this morning, I put two more cups of water in a pot with a little less than 1 teaspoon of salt. {Sidenote: my family uses salted butter; if you prefer unsalted butter, you may want to use a teaspoon or more salt at this step.} While the water was coming to a boil, I chopped 1-1/2 apples into tiny bits. When the water was boiling, I added the soaked oats with their soaking water, the apples, and one teaspoon cinnamon. I reduced to the pot to simmer and let the oats hang out until almost all the water was cooked off and the apples were tender. I turned off the stove and added about two tablespoons salted butter and a generous amount of maple syrup. It turned out really great and the kids seemed to love it as well!
