Oatmeal - Hot Cereal 

Bob's Red Mill seven grain cereal.

The basic proportion is:
1 c dry cereal
3 c water
1/2 t salt
Boil water, add salt, whisk in cereal. Lower heat to a gentle boil. Cover and cook at least 10 minutes. Continue to lower heat to a very gentle simmer and cook longer.

For four of us:
3 3/4 c water
rounded 1/2 t salt
1 1/4 c cereal

Enough salt really makes this cereal good, but it is easy to get too much as well.

Serve with heavy cream for a rich treat!
Add snipped dates, or currants, or of course raisins.
Add sliced crispy almonds.
