Cranberry and Orange Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup Craisins
2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped

In a nonmetal bowl, combine steel cut oats, Craisins, orange peel, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Stir in milk. Cover and chill for 8 to 24 hours.

To serve, transfer to a medium saucepan. Heat just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes or until oatmeal is done, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in butter until melted. At this point you may want to add additional milk to make it the desired consistency. Spoon into four bowls; sprinkle with sugar and nuts.

Makes 4 servings.

The original recipe called for dried cherries and tangerine peel, but I used what I had on hand, and it turned out great! Also, I added a little extra milk for consistency, but skipped the butter, sugar and almonds and we still enjoyed it. If you make any alterations that you would recommend, please add a comment.
