These are first chopped into small pieces (steel cut) and then rolled as thin as possible to expose more surface area, which allows them to cook quicker and bind together easier when baking. Unlike ‘instant’ or conventionally milled quick oats, these oats are not steam processed, and the nutritional value is not altered in any way. We like to use quick cooking oats in muffins, breads, cookies, pancakes, and squares, or to replace up to 1/3 of the wheat flour in any recipe that needs a flavour and nutrition boost.
Adagio Acres is a small family farm of 80 acres located in the Interlake region of Manitoba. Crops are grown organically, relying on long rotations with perennial grasses to manage weeds and build soil health instead of using chemicals, and fertilize fields with manure to help close the nutrient loop. They also place high value on natural biodiversity and maintaining natural habitat for wildlife. Small fields are interspersed with marshland and forests, making them excellent habitat for deer, elk, coyotes, birds, and insects.
