FAB RECIPE: STRAWBERRY AND NECTARINE OATMEAL
So, I had a "when eating fabulously goes wrong" moment. Hand pies were on the agenda over the weekend, Strawberry Nectarine hand pies to be exact. Doesn't that sound good? Let me correct you, it wasn't. When my hand pie experiment went A-wall the only delicious thing that emerged from it was this amazing uncooked filling. The 8 ingredient pie filling I had planned for my pies, turned in to this amazing topping for my steel cut oatmeal the next morning. Salt draws out liquid, so tossing all the fresh fruit with a twist off cracked sea salt allows the natural juices to come out which ultimately makes the best sugary liquid. Spoon over your favorite oatmeal and your set. The best part about this recipe is that there is no strict recipe to follow. Pick up your favorite fruit at a farmers market and switch it up everyday of the week.
Strawberry and Nectarine Oatmeal
2 nectarines, washed and sliced
1/2 pint of strawberries, washed tops off and quartered

Rinse all fruit thoroughly and trim ends. Slices nectarines and quarter strawberries. In a large bowl toss fruit and remaining ingredients, adding as little or as much as your taste buds desire. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before spooning over your favorite hot oatmeal.
