Cherry Vanilla Oatmeal


1 ¾ cups water
1 cup quick cooking oats
¼ cups dried cherries
1/8 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons cherry jam


Combine water, oats, cherries and salt together in a medium sauce pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Remove oatmeal from heat and stir in vanilla extract and cherry jam.

*Option: Use different combinations of dried fruit and jam to create other oatmeal flavors. Try strawberry jam for strawberry vanilla oatmeal or dried peaches and peach jam for peach vanilla oatmeal.
