Macroom Irish Oatmeal

Stones, not steel.

Eating this for the first time is like taking your first promenade in Paris, France, when all you’ve known is Paris, Texas: you realize just how good oatmeal can be.

The Walton family has been milling oats in Ireland since the 1700s, and they still use old stone wheels, which I think leave the oats better tasting than steel-cut. The result is a coarse meal that has its natural oils still intact (making the meal darker than other oatmeal). Facts aside, the most important thing is the way it tastes, which is darn, darn good.

"Stone ground and very coarse, it's different from anyone else's in Ireland, full of flavor when simply cooked and immensely satisfying in its grainy texture."
Saveur magazine

"May well be the best oatmeal I've ever eaten."
John Thorne, Simple Cooking

John Thorne's Recipe for Macroom Oatmeal
I toasted a half cup in a bit of butter in a hot skillet until it was nicely tan, then stirred in a cup of milk and a cup of water, plus half a teaspoon of sea salt. I cooked it for thirty minutes and let it sit in the double boiler for another twenty to thicken up. Since it was toasted in butter, I merely added a little half & half.

Storage
Keep your oatmeal in the freezer. Even though it won't go bad for some time if kept at room temperature, it lasts much longer in the freezer.

Gluten free, though it's ground in a mill that also processes wheat and rye, so use sound judgement.
