These are the whole grain oat groats that have been minimally processed, with the inedible outer layer removed and the remaining groat cut into small pieces. They retain much of the nutrients of the whole oat groats, but their smaller size allows for a quicker cooking time. They have been lightly toasted to preserve freshness and improve flavour. No additives or preservatives are added.
Stir 1 cup steelcut oat groats into 2 cups boiling water. Simmer covered for 40 minutes, stirring frequently. For a quicker breakfast, soak 1 cup oats in 2 cups water overnight, discard soaking water, cover with milk or fresh water and simmer for 5 minutes.
Oat groats can be cooked and served as cereal, or prepared in the same manner as rice and used as a side dish or in a dish such as a salad or stuffing.
When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 12 months.
