When I was growing up one of my favorite breakfast was my mother's oatmeal. It was especially a favorite of mine after we moved to the northern US and experienced really cold winter mornings, it was a great way to warm up and get the day started. I always heard people saying that they hated oatmeal and how disgusting it looked to them. I didn't understand because my mother's oatmeal tasted so good. I came to the conclusion why others hated it, they made it with water.....yuck, you have to make it with milk, whole milk is even better. Mom's oatmeal was cooked slowly with whole milk, whole cinnamon sticks and just a bit of sugar and it was amazing!
1. In a small pot under low heat melt the butter, then add apples,raisins, sugar and cinnamon, let this cook for a 5 minutes to warm the apples through and make them a bit soft.
