Very cool, I loved the ginger and it was great spicing up my oatmeal for breakfast this morning, thanks.
This was really nice, I'm not really a ginger fan but the taste was so subtle & not overpowering. I didn't need to add any sweetner as the crytallized ginger & pears were enough for me & instead of water I used a little pear juice & milk combined.
I made this in the rice cooker using regular Quaker Oats as in the recipe Oatmeal Cooked in a Rice Cooker . I cooked the oatmeal as normal but threw in the ginger, brown sugar, and pear for the last 5 minutes of cook-time. I defeated the low fat-low sugar plan by using real brown sugar and real half and half. I also used fresh pear. This was the first time I've ever tried candied ginger, and I'm not sure I like it, but it was really neat the way I'd get these sudden flavor bursts of the candied ginger. The rest of the recipe was divine (just sweet enough, good texture, etc.) and if you really like candied ginger, this is a top-notch recipe! Thanks ladypit for a yummy new breakfast treat.
"Decadent Tasting" is exactly correct! This was like eating candy for breakfast--and it's not even fattening! Yay!
This was so good after my morning workout! I was only going to eat half the recipe, but I couldn't help myself to eat the entire amount : ) I love the addition of the pears and the crystallized ginger. I used old fashioned oats so I had to cook just a bit longer, but the wait was well worth it! Thanks for sharing, ladypit!
No surprise here, I loved this. The pear-ginger combination gives a different flavor and texture to my favorite breakfast food. I tend to like my oatmeal a bit looser than most, so I added and extra quarter cup of water. Next time, I'm thinking about adding a bit of the pear juice. Yummmy!
This is a wonderful breakfast treat which I have now made twice for DH and me. I did not have canned pears; however, did have fresh. I cored, peeled and diced a fresh pear and cooked it in the water the ginger for a few minutes before adding regular oats instead of the quick-cooking. I also added a touch of cinnamon the second time around and it was wonderful.
