I am pretty new to food storage. I have my 3 month supply and am currently working on a year supply. My question is about oats. I placed a bulk order at a small Mennonite store near my home. I bought 25 lbs of oats for my 3 months supply. I use them in baking and to make oat flour. The problem I have with them is my kids do not like the constancy of them when I make them as a breakfast food. They are used to the smoother constancy of a quick oat. I would love to continue to buy them in bulk since it was a great price, but I can only make so much baked oatmeal foods. Will cutting them smaller in my food processor make them a quick oat? I am not sure of the difference between quick vs. rolled. I am assuming it is the size. What I want to do is make up dry mixes with oats, brown sugar and dried apples (their favorite flavor) and keep them in mason jars so the kids can measure out 1/2 cup and make their own breakfast some days. Sorry for rambling. I guess it is not that important, I could just buy the quick oats. I just thought it was worth asking since it is so much cheaper to buy it in bulk. Thank you I have learned so much from this boards and look forward to learning more.
