Apple Harvest Party Week 7




Welcome to Week 7 of the Apple Harvest Party!

Please Join in and share your recipe that includes Apples...or Pears or Quince!
We are now harvesting our Quince so I am going to see if I can come up with something to share, Quince-related, for next week!  In the mean time, this week I am sharing something so simple, it shouldn't really be a 'recipe', but it is SO good!

Join in below by entering your name and the url for your post!



Honey Apple Ricotta Steel Cut Oats
Serves 2
 
1/2 Cup Steel Cut Oats
2 Cups Water
1-1.5 Tbsp Honey - to taste
2 Tbsp Ricotta
1 Apple, diced - your favorite variety
 
Bring the water to a boil in a deep pot. Pour in your Steel Cut oats and cook over a slow boil for 15 minutes or so, stirring often. In the mean time, in a bowl, throw in your diced apples and honey. Really, the amount of both depends on your preference. I had a sweeter heirloom variety apple in mine and just shy of a tablespoon of honey.
 
Once the oats are cooked, divide them between two bowls. Top with Ricotta (again, really the amount depends on your preferance), and mix well. Enjoy!
 
*Since hubby usually doesn't grab breakfast on weekdays (shame on him), I use a canning jar to store the second serving (sans the Ricotta - add that right before you eat it) for the next morning. Throw it in the microwave to warm it up, then top with your ricotta and mix. Steel Cut Oats store & reheat well :)

Love apple oatmeal! With MEAP tests this week it sounds like the perfect dish to keep the girl child filled up.

Since the only apple thing I love is candy apples I would be screwed living on your orchard :)
