Spiced Oatmeal

Christina Schmidhofer

To avoid the packaging of instant oatmeal, Lynn Lloyd experimented until she came up with her own mix, a blend of dried fruit, grains, nuts, and mellow spices. She buys 4- or 7-grain hot-cereal flakes in a health food store. You can also use a coarsely ground hot cereal. The uncooked mixture (complete step 1) will keep, stored airtight, up to a month. PREP AND COOK TIME: About 15 minutes.

Yield: Makes 9 cups mix; 12 servings

  2. 2. For each serving, in a 1- to 2-quart pan, bring 1 cup water to a boil over high heat.

Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, until it's as thick as you like.
