|Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal|
Sometimes you just need the comfort of a warm bowl of oatmeal. This is made special by the addition of spiced Apple Cider. VegDad makes spiced cider a few times a year and after we are tired of drinking cider, I love to use the leftover for making oatmeal, apple butter, apple cakes, apple pies, etc.
2 cups Water
2 cups Spiced Apple Cider
1 cup John McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
1 Granny Smith Apple, Diced
1/2 cup pecan or walnut pieces
Pour water and cider into a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Sprinkle in oats while stirring and lower temperature to medium. Stir in apple and nuts. Cook, stirring occasionally lowering temperature as needed to maintain a simmer, 30-35 minutes. Add a small amount of agave or demerara if desired.
