How To Make oatmeal creme brulee

    In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil; stir in the oats, apricots, cherries and salt. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar and 1/4 cup ginger cream. Let stand, covered, for 2 minutes.

    Grease four 10-oz. broiler-safe ramekins with butter; place on a baking sheet. Divide raspberries among ramekins. Spoon oatmeal over raspberries, sprinkle evenly with sugar. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 7-9 minutes or until sugar is caramelized. Serve with remaining ginger cream.
