Recipe of the Week:  Huckleberry Oatmeal

The following recipe for Huckleberry Oatmeal is from SurvivalBlog reader L.K.. She says that huckleberries are best, but substituting blueberries will suffice:

  • Huckleberries (fresh or frozen). The second choice is Blueberries.
  • Old Fashioned rolled oats. (Don’t use instant oats or steel-cut oats)
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Water
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Allspice
  • Salt
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cream or whole milk.
  1. Briefly toast the oats in butter until fragrant. This adds to the flavor.
  2. Add water and stir! Keep stirring throughout the cooking time.
  3. Smush the blueberries with the back of a spoon, as you stir. The more berries you smush up, the oats become progressively more purplish-colored.
  4. Optionally, add brown sugar, spices, and vanilla extract, to suit your taste.

Serve with cream or whole milk.  No need to add syrup. With the brown sugar, this will be plenty sweet, as is.
