Irish Oatmeal With Seasonal Berries

Irish Oatmeal With Seasonal Berries

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups rolled oats (real Irish or steel cut outs if available)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup seasonal berries (blueberries and blackberries work great)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 8 Tablespoons cream
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan set to medium heat, bring corn syrup and brandy to a simmer. Add raisins and simmer 5 additional minutes. Set aside and alow to cool - the longer the better. You want the raisins to absorb the brandy.

In a fairly large saucepan, bring water and salt to a rolling boil. Add butter and oats. Immediately lower heat. Allow oats to simmer 7 to 10 minutes until oats are tender. Drain excess water from oats if neccessary.

Set out 4 serving bowls, place in the bootom of each bowl: 2 Tablespoons of cream, 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon of drained raisins. Add warm oats and top with fresh berries.

For an even better taste, soak the raisin in the brandy overnight before making the recipe.
