Great groats! It’s oatmeal!

Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way, maybe we can talk about something that is really important: oatmeal.

Let’s be specific. What most Americans think of as “oatmeal” is really rolled oats. You know, the stuff that comes in the big cardboard tube with the smiling Quaker on the front. These are oat groats (the grain with the husk removed) that have been steamed to soften them and then rolled flat. This process lets you cook them more quickly at home. The difference between rolled oats that are labeled “old-fashioned” and “quick-cooking” is how thickly they’re rolled.
