I used to add a sprinkling of oatmeal to my mixture of coarse and fine oats, makes the result so creamy. Oatmeal is expensive (why?), wholemeal wheat flour is just as good
We've been ordering that quantity for several years and it doesn't go 'off' or taste any different (I bought the last one in April just before lockdown), we just store it in air tight boxes somewhere cool and dark. This is jumbo oats, the big one! It has allot of texture which we all prefer, and hence the overnight soak. I'm pretty sure all the UK jumbo oats comes from Aberdeenshire.
I've got bored with it at times, but husband and son have continued to eat it and I think I prefer it now, fills you up and tastes good. I don't think how you heat it makes any difference, I think the amount you stir it affects it more.
