The Barn Inn's Pumpkin Steel Cut Oats

This fall, these Pumpkin flavored steel cut oats are one of the new menu favorites of Millersburg, Ohio Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast guests. This gluten-free dish is a lovely departure from standard oatmeal, and we are posting this recipe upon multiple requests. This recipe serves 4-6 people, but we serve ours in 6 oz cups.

Loretta’s Pumpkin Flavored Steel-Cut Oats
1 tbsp butter
1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups water
1 cup milk
½ cup applesauce
1 tsp salt
1 cup pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp honey

Melt butter in large sauce pan. Add steel cut oats. Brown the oats (be careful not to scorch), then add water.  Simmer approximately 15 minutes before adding remaining ingredients on low heat. Be careful, because steel cut oats tend to cook over if left unattended and make a large mess. Because I have a gas stove, I begin cooking this two hours in advance of serving time. I start it, and let it sit on the pilot light, and the pilot provides enough heat to slowly cook the oats. About a half hour before serving time, I add the remaining ingredients and cook until the oats are soft. Serve with toasted almonds, brown sugar, and milk.
