5 c Water 1 c Oatmeal; * see note 1/2 c Dried fruit 1 ds Ground nutmeg 1 ds Ground mace 1 ds Ground cinnamon Recipe by: McDougall Place water, cereal, and dried fruit in slow cooker. Stir. Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours. The mixture should be like a thick soup, so do not add milk at the table. HELPFUL HINTS: Each slow cooker is a little different from the others, so you may have to adjust the amount of water needed. For added flavor sprinkle a bit of nutmeg, mace or cinnamon, in any combination. Try brown rice, barley, rye berries, whole oats, or wheat berries. Cracked grains, such as oatmeal or cracked wheat, may get too mushy for some tastes. From the collection of Sue Smith, S.Smith34, Uploaded June 16, 1994
