  1. Having grown up with old fashioned rolled oats for oatmeal, I find quick oats to be almost flavorless. No wonder that in this recipe it needs the additions of cinnamon and berries and jam!
    There is so much flavor in rolled or other less processed oats that oatmeal from them needs nothing more than water and a little salt [yes!] for the cooking - cook patiently in a pot or in the microwave oven. Then stir in a little more salt and butter and milk before eating. Sugar hides the delicious grain flavor.
