Apples on oatmeal

March 23, 2010

Growing up in a tropical country, I have known mangoes, pineapples, papayas amd soursops earlier than apples, strawberries and oranges. Imagine a row of trees heavy with fruits that some would fall off the ground….well, it’s not so dreamy because it’s a farm, but that’ the kind of life I actually miss. Where I can own a garden and grow roses, tomatoes, forget me nots, basil, cucumber, and orchids. A view of pink, blue, red and vibrant green when I look at my kitchen window in the morning…perfect!

Coming back to reality now,I miss those fruits I enjoyed as a kid, where I am now they are considered exotic as were apples and peaches in my country. The other day, I tried to make this healthy breakfast, oatmeal with cinnamon apples…despite having allergies with the fruit that came about 2 years ago. My throat gets itchy when I eat them, same goes for my 2 older kids. We all have allergies with Steinobst, fruits that have big seeds in them, I think, like pear, peaches, apples, nectarines…and an odd case, kiwi. My daughter’s lips turn red when she eats them…which looks good anyway. 😀

So here’s a recipe I adapted somewhere, which would yield servings for 3.

Ingredients

* 1 cup water
* 1/4 cup apple juice
* 1 apple, cored and chopped
* 2/3 cup oats
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1 cup milk

Directions

1. Combine the water, apple juice, and apples in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, and stir in oats and cinnamon. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 3 minutes. Spoon into serving bowls, and pour milk over the servings.

P.S. I did eat a few bites of apples and a few minutes later not only my throat was itchy but my eyes too. It was so good that I forgot about the allergies for a while haha….but I will surely remove the apples next time…. *sigh*

  1. My friend has reactions like that to kiwi. She gets itchy throat, can’t eat it.

    I gag just looking at cow’s milk; so I am trying not to look at your photo. Apples seem so innocent to me!

  2. Sorry you and your kids have that allergy.

    The oatmeal recipe sounds delicious. I love apples.

    Happy Ruby Tuesday!

  3. The ruby color of apples catches our eyes of itself. But these oats are perfect, and tasty – a breakfast we would be happy to get up early to enjoy!
