McCann's Irish steel cut oats took center stage for our St. Pat's breakfast yesterday. Of course, I forgot to prep the brown sugar. Here's what was done early yesterday morning: I placed brown sugar in an oven proof dish, set the oven to 170º then immediately turned off the oven and leaving the oven light on. Next, placed the brown sugar in the oven and let it dry out for about 1 1/2 hours. Used a spice grinder. Worked perfectly! For the second part of Step #2, the oatmeal started to boil over and the heat was reduced to medium-low. Granny Smith apples replaced both the dried apples and dried pears. I don't own a blow torch and used the alternate method. Served with cream, maple syrup, little bit of Irish butter. ~Tasty Dish~ liked hers with cinnamon, raisins, milk and a small pat of Irish butter. YUM!
