Cranberry and Cider Oats
How to Make Cranberry and Cider Oats
- Combine oats, cider, and salt in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium high heat until the mixture comes to a boil, stirring while heating. Lower heat, cover, and just simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the oats are as soft as you like them.
- During the last 3 minutes of cooking, stir in the dried cranberries. When done, remove from heat, and stir in nuts if desired.
- Cooked with the apple cider, this oatmeal is sweet enough for me without adding sugar or honey. But if you like, sprinkle each serving with cinnamon sugar.
- VARIATION: This can also be made cold. The night before, mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir well and spoon it into individual serving dishes. It can be eaten cold, or gently warmed in the microwave.
