"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 part organic oats, 1 part milk, and 1 part water.
One cup of each makes enough oatmeal for four people, (use cup oatmeal, cup milk, and cup water if it's just two of you, then adjust the other amounts).
Bring it to a gentle boil. While it's heating up, toss in:
heaping tablespoon (or more) crystallized ginger, diced.
small splash vanilla
healthy pinch of cinnamon
small splash maple syrup
a few raisins if you like them

Directions:
Directions:
Simmer this mixture for about five minutes, or until most of the liquid disappears.
I like to put heavy bowls in a gently heated oven for a few minutes while the oatmeal cooks, so that the bowls are toasty-hot when they're filled and brought to the table.
I top the oatmeal with cut-up organic bananas. Apples are good, too. Dust the bowls with one more pinch of cinnamon.
