Oatmeal Porridge recipe

Oatmeal Porridge.

The cut grain of steel-cut oats takes longerto cook than rolled oats – but the result is a distinctive, chewytexture that makes it all worthwhile! As an added treat, tossin raisins, chopped dates, fresh blueberries, sliced bananasor your favorite nuts (toasted nuts are terrific) into individualservings.

Another delicious recipe from our Family-FavoriteRecipes Collection.

4 cups water1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt1 cup steel-cut oats (also called Irishoatmeal and Scotch oats)

  • Bring water and salt to a boil in mediumsaucepan. Stir in oats, bring back up to a boil; reduce heatand simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally at first and morefrequently as mixture thickens, for about 25 to 30 minutes oruntil the grains have absorbed most of the water.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately,or if a thicker texture is desired, cover saucepan and let sitfor a few minutes.
  • As desired, serve oatmeal porridge sweetenedwith granulated sugar, brown sugar or honey and topped with adrizzle or more of milk, cream or half-and-half.

    A wee bit of Oatmeal Trivia: A bowl ofIrish steel-cut oatmeal is traditionally served with buttermilk…butI won’t hold you to tradition, especially since I personallymuch prefer plain milk or cream!

    add sugar as per taste. i just added 2 tbsp sugar. sugar is completely optional. if adding fruits later, then you can skip sugar. if adding honey, then add when the porridge becomes lukewarm or cools down at room temperature, as honey becomes toxic on being heated. Your site has all wonderful recipes and whenever I have to try something new I don t forget to visit your site. great Job. When will you be posting some recipes on tinda?
