thanks to mmm.chocolate for the jam suggestion

I just ate the best, most delectable, most comforting bowl of creamy, perfectly al dente oatmeal I've ever eaten anywhere in my whole entire life from birth to now, including today. Donald Trump himself could not lay his hands on enough hyperbole to accurately describe my breakfast. I will give it to you exactly the way I ate it, and you can make substitutions where you need to.

Religious Experience Oatmeal
Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Grain Steel Cut Oats
raw, whole milk in which the cream has risen to the top
Emily's recipe strawberry jam

Bring to a boil 1 C of water and 1/2 C of milk. Add 1/2 C of oats, lower the heat, cover, and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10-20 minutes (depending on how firm you like it). When it is cooked to your preference, put it into a bowl and add 1 T of sucanat, 2 T of jam, and creamy milk to taste. Stir just enough to loosely incorporate, but NOT until it's homogeneous. Eat it slowly, if you can.

Suggested substitutions:
any brand of Irish/steel-cut oats
dead milk, half and half or cream
whatever jam you have on hand
brown sugar

Understand that your mileage may vary, but I'm betting that it will still BLOW your FREAKING MIND.

I am so honored to have been a part of the inspiration for these oats from heaven. Really, all of the credit should go to this INCREDIBLE jam!
