For the Ginger Cream:
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 slices fresh gingerroot (about ¾-inch diameter)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
For the Oatmeal:
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup chopped dried apricots
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed
  • ¼ cup sugar
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the cream, ginger, cinnamon and orange peel to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and strain; discard the solids. Stir in nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Add the oats, apricots, cherries, and salt; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar and ¼ cup ginger cream. Cover and let stand for 2 minutes.
  3. Spray 4 10-ounce ramekins with non-stick spray. Add raspberries evenly between all four ramekins. Spoon the oatmeal over the top and sprinkle with sugar. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 7 to 9 minutes or until the sugar is caramelized. Serve with remaining cream.
