Irish Stirabout (Oatmeal)

You can do without the whiskey soaked raisins here, it's just has yummy with plain raisins or any other dried fruit.

Irish Stirabout (Oatmeal)

Steel cut Irish oats have an unparalleled texture and flavor, but do take more time to cook. Start this luxurious version the night before for quick bowl of the best oats you ever tasted!

4 cups water
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Irish steel cut oats
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup Irish whiskey or brandy
1 cup raisins
8 T cream
4 T brown sugar
4 T butter
2 cups fresh berries

The night before, boil four cups of water and salt, add oatmeal, stir and turn off the heat. Cover the pot and leave overnight. In a second pan, bring corn syrup and brandy to a simmer over medium heat. Add raisins and simmer 3 to 5 minutes. Cover and set-aside until morning.

The next morning, bring oats to a brisk boil and cook until they are just tender. Meanwhile, place 2 TBS of cream, 1 TBS brown sugar, 1 TBS butter, and 1 TBS drained raisins in each bowl. Add hot cooked oats and top with fresh berries. Serve, allowing each person to unveil the tasty surprise awaiting below. Sandy's recipe

oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods. I have never thought of having whiskey soaked raisins, but the thought of them are making my taste buds water.

I have to try it. I rarely drink, but now you have given me a pleasant reason to buy a bottle of Irish whiskey which I also like in coffee.
