Caramel Steel Cut Oats with Apples and Cranberries
4 cups Water
1 cup Steel Cut or Irish Oats
1/3 cup sugar free (or not) Caramel Syrup, such as DaVinci
1 large Apple, peeled and diced (about 1-1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen Cranberries
Cinnamon and freshly grated Nutmeg, to taste
Bring water to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in oats and return to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Allow to cook about 10 minutes, partially covered. Stir in the fruit, caramel syrup if using, and spices. Let simmer for another 20 minutes or so, stirring often. Watch the flame so it doesn’t scorch or stick.
