I have always loved multi grain hot cereals. However, they can be quite pricey at the grocery store. This is a homemade version that is simple, nutritious, and economical. It is naturally sweet, so be careful not to add too much sweetener at first. I like mine topped with cream, but it would also be good with nuts and/or dried fruit sprinkled on top.
5 Grain Hot Cereal
1 cup old fashioned oats
½ cup brown rice
½ cup barley
½ cup white whole wheat flour
½ cup corn meal
Add the oats to a blender and process until it becomes flour consistency. Pour into a quart sized Mason jar. Repeat with the brown rice and pour into the jar. Repeat again with the barley and pour into the jar. Add white whole wheat flour and corn meal to the jar and shake to combine. Cover and store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 cups
To serve: To a sauce pan, add 1/3 cup cereal and 1 cup water. Turn heat to medium high. When it begins to boil, turn the heat to low, simmer and stir until desired consistency (3-5 minutes). Serve with sugar or honey and cream or milk to taste.
