Apple-Oatmeal "Cobblidge"


Apple-Oatmeal “Cobblidge”

*******
Serves 1
This is like a cobbler, yet also like porridge, so I call it “cobblidge”.
 I often shoot from the hip and make whatever sounds good to me without a recipe. I described this oatmeal I’d made to a friend and she wanted the recipe.  I tried to figure out the quantities for her and include them here. If it’s fall or winter go with the whole tablespoon of ghee; it’s very nourishing for this time of year.

For each serving:
1 apple, organic, quartered (peeled or not) and cut into 1-inch chunks
Water OR herbal tea (chamomile is good with this)
¼ to ½ tsp cinnamon 
salt to taste
¼ tsp minced fresh ginger
*
1/3 C old-fashioned rolled oats (the same as two handfuls)
½ to 1 TBL ghee (clarified butter), or coconut oil

  1. Into a small saucepan add cut up apple, about ½-inch of water or herbal tea , cinnamon, salt, and ginger. Bring water to a boil, then lower heat and cover pan with lid. Simmer for a few minutes until apples are soft. Maybe about 4 minutes.
  2. Add oats and add a little more water if it needs it, but no so much that it is soupy. It's more like the oats cling to the apples with some yummy thickened cinnamon-apple juice.
  3. Stir in the ghee.
  4. Serve with milk (dairy, rice or nut milk)
