Homegrown oatmeal

We're excited to be eating our own oatmeal these days.  The first step in getting a bowl of oats is to run the oats through a roller.
The oats are a hull less oat which means they thresh free of the hull like wheat but unlike most oats.  There are still some hulls though.  To get rid of them we add water.  The hulls float and the oats sink.  We skim the hulls off then start cooking.

These really are the best oats we've eaten.  It may have a little to do with how much work we put into getting them to the table, but it is probably also that they are fresh rolled.  They are sweet enough they really don't need honey.
