fresh blueberries (optional)
half & half (optional)
Plug in the IP and oatmeal, dried cherries, dried blueberries and water.
Secure the lid of the IP and ensure the valve is set to SEALING.
Press MANUAL and adjust the time to 3 minutes on HIGH pressure.
When the display reflects 7 minutes (which is 7 minutes since the IP has beeped), turn the setting on top of your IP to VENTING. Doing so allows the IP to quickly release pressure (also known as QRP or QR). I use a wooden spoon to carefully turn the setting to avoid close contact with the potential steam. You may also want to turn your IP away from cabinets to allow the released steam to escape freely. The pin at the top of your IP will drop when all pressure has been released and it’s safe to open.
Stir oatmeal. You’ll notice it may look like there is more liquid for the oatmeal to absorb, but the oatmeal will absorb it as it continues to cool.
To serve, enjoy as is or top with more fresh blueberries or even a touch of half & half!
