Hearty oats are a perfect start to the day. This recipe twists tradition with a sweet and tangy balsamic-honey reduction in lieu of the oft-favored brown sugar. If you find yourself with extra Balsamic Fig Reduction, save and drizzle over grilled lamb chops or your favorite vanilla bean ice cream!
- 1 cup McCann's Steel Cut Oats
- 4 cups water
- ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 3 cups balsamic vinegar
- ⅓ cup quartered dried Calymira figs (dried Mission figs will do as well)
- ¼ cup honey
Whisk oats into 4 cups of rapidly boiling water; add salt and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 30 minutes, stirring occassionally.
Meanwhile, in a small pot over medium-low heat, combine balsamic vinegar, honey and figs. Reduce until liquid has reached about 1 cup (⅔ the original volume). Remove from heat and let cool.
Drizzle over finished oatmeal.
