Steel-cut oats have been cut into small pieces that can be cooked in about 15 minutes. Their texture is more like rice than typical oatmeal.
- 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
- 1 1/2 cups liquid
- 4-6 chopped apricots
Bring the liquid to a boil. Add the oats, boiling them for 5 minutes. Remove the heat, cover and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. If you are going to add a flavoring, stir in the oats just after they come off the heat, but before you cover them.
Add apricots and a pinch of nutmeg.
