How to Soak Oatmeal
- Combine 1 cup rolled or steel cut oats with 1 cup water with 1 Tbs lemon juice . Do it in the pot you intend to cook in. Make sure it is NOT an aluminium pot.
- The water should be warmer than room temp at the start. You’d need to gently warm it in a kettle or in the pot to 110° F (43.33°C) degrees or so.
- Do not use water directly from the hot water geyser.
- Oats are low in the enzyme phytase, needed to neutralize the phytates, so add a Tablespoon or two (10%) of organic stone ground wheat flour to your oats, too.
- Leave at room temperature 24 hours (or at least 12). You can soak it overnight. but the best for oatmeal is to let it soak for 24 hours.
- Tip: Just get oats soaking for tomorrow’s breakfast as you’re cleaning up today’s, as breakfast will be on your mind.
- Add another cup of clean spring/borehole water water in the morning, bring to a boil and cook a few minutes until thick.
- Buy lemons on sale and freeze juice in 1 Tablespoon-sized portions in ice cube trays or popsicle molds.
- Store in a freezer
