1 cup steel-cut oats

4 cups milk

Pinch kosher salt

Two 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup dried currants

3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

Serving suggestions:



maple syrup



yogurt or cream


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the oats and milk. Cover and let soak in the refrigerator overnight. Transfer the oat mixture to a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan. Add the salt and cinnamon sticks and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, currants, and sugar; and simmer for 5 minutes more. Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve plain or with your topping of choice.
