    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1. Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan, and stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.
    2. While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.

    I have made a similar breakfast from oatmeal, and I put in a chopped up apple and raisins; but I never thought about adding carrots to the mixture. That sounds even better, healthier,and almot like having a carrot cake.
    I will definitely have to try that when I have hot cereal. It is longer than I usually cook my oatmeal; but it would take a while before the apples and carrots got cooked, I imagine.
    What did you think about it when you made it for breakfast, Pat ? Does it taste as good as it sounds ?

    Sounds like an interesting dish, Pat, but my question is what is a steel cut oat? I don't like cereal very much but I can find Quaker Oats here.
