Groats help needed

Just bought some oats groats at the health food store, it is organic and was sold in bulk, so no directions

I seem to remember someone saying they boiled it the night before and had it in the morning! Can you tell me how much water to the groats and do you refrigerate it overnight Don't want to get food poisoning

I use groats a lot. The original directions I had said to add 1 cup of groats to 4 cups water. bring to a boil, cover and let sit on the stove overnight. In the morning, heat the amount you want to eat for breakfast and put the rest in the frig for another day. I have been doing it this way for a long time and have had no problems.
I love groats.

And I am currently getting over food poisoning from (probably) eating fruit at a reception. Just a useless bit of info.

I did the 4 to 1 ratio with the bulk groats I got at Whole Foods and it was a little too much water. Next time I'm going to try 3 to 1. It may depend on brand or something.

On a side note, I had them one morning with a little coconut davinci's and CO and it was AMAZING! They're good alone, or with fruit, or syrup and butter. Quite

Groats sound like animal feed to me But so many of you eat it, I just may have to try it. Similar in taste to?

Groats are whole oats so they are slightly crunchy, nutty like texture. So much better than oatmeal. (at least to me) And yes you can buy groats to feed livestick too.

Dawn - I would think that groats from different sources would have different moisture content so could require different amounts of water to come out right. Glad you found the amount that works for you. I am still having good results with the 4 cups water to 1 cup groats.

leonak - thanks for the get well wishes. It is slow going but I am getting there.

Thank you! Now another question. I saw Buckwheat Groats at my healthfood store the other day. Do you eat that as well or recommend sticking with the oat groat (I love saying that!).

I have never eaten buckwheat groats. They are not the same as oat groats and are not available anywhere around here. I am an oat groat fan.

Thanks! I'll try the oat groats and report back - I love oatmeal, so I'm kind of looking forward to this.

Buckwheat is delicious! Try it!
AKA kasha...it's good savory as well as sweet.
A traditional (Jewish, I believe) recipe is kasha with mushrooms.

Also, it's technically not a grain, so may fit into certain restricted diets.

Thanks! I'll try them as well - they were pretty cheap, so if I don't like them I guess I could toss 'em. Okay, off to get my groats on!
