Peaches and Oatmeal


I was feeling nostalgic this morning and missing peach season. So I reached for a jar of the peaches I had canned in August. Sadly I didn't get too much other canning done but I was sure to make time in the late evening/early morning hours to get some peaches in the jar. They're my favorite.

Oatmeal was never something we had in my house growing up. I remember the first time I had it was at a sleep over and I absolutely hated it. However as the years passed it grew on me and it's now a great option when I'm not in the mood for eggs and want something warm and sweet.


Peaches and Oatmeal
1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup water (I like a thicker oatmeal and you'll be adding a little more liquid)
2-4 wedges of freshly canned peaches or if it's peach season go for the fresh ones
2 tsp. juice from the canned peaches
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of cinnamon
a small pinch of ground ginger
2 tbs. brown sugar

Cook your oatmeal and add vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar, peach juice. Stir and slice peach wedges over top.  Breakfast is served!
