Look no further ~ I aim to please:
(as found in my parents hometown newspaper ~ with a few subtle changes)
Gather your ingredients:
Turn it on (I actually set a timer to turn it on so it doesn't overcook).
Then go here:
Well, not here exactly because that would be creepy, but you know what I mean.
Add in the brown sugar that you didn't add in last night ~ because you wern't suppose to (I don't know why, thats what the recipe says to do.)
Prepare your toppings
Now doesn't that look YUMMY!
Oh, and we can't forget to clean up:
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups apple juice
1 cup steel-cut oats
1/2 cup regular barley (NOT quick cooking)
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
Toppings (all of course are optional, but if you ask me the pecans, apple and honey (and I don't typically like honey) make the oatmeal!):
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted (if desired)
coarsely chopped apple (1-2 apples)
~ Line a 3 1/2 - 4 quart slow cooker with a disposable slow-cooker liner. IN slow cooker, combine water, apple juice, oats, barley, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
~ Cover and cook on low heat setting for 6-7 hours. Before serving, stir in brown sugar. Top with pecans and apples. Serve with honey and milk.
*Makes about 8 servings.
