slow oats

1 tbs butter
2 ½ cups extra thick rolled oats
3-inch cinnamon stick
4 cups cold water

In a medium pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add oats and toss or stir until oats are toasted and fragrant; 3-4 minutes. Add water and cinnamon stick, increase heat, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to med-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to low and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick. Serve oatmeal with milk (and/or a drizzle of cereal cream), dark brown sugar and stewed fruit.
