Recipe of the Week

This week’s recipe comes to us from Jennifer in Arkansas, on the Farmgirl Connection. She says:

“We love steel-cut oatmeal on chilly mornings. Steel-cut oats are whole oat groats that have been chopped into smaller pieces (rolled oats have been steamed, rolled, and flaked for easier cooking). They take longer to cook, but it’s worth it.”
