Steel-Cut Oats: McCann's vs bulk product
I have been paying almost $6 per 28oz can of McCann's oatmeal. The other day I noticed steel cut oats in bulk at a local grocer (Fairway in NYC) for $1.99 per pound. Can anyone imagine that these would be any less good than McCann's? I plan to try when I finish the open can In my house, but for now, curious if anyone thinks there is a difference. Thanks.
Less good? No. I think the bulk is every bit as good as McCann's.
Still, there are differences. I have never found bulk (or even another $$ brand), steelcut oats that have the same size cut or the uniformity of size as McCann's. I think the latter therefore yields a more uniform consistency in the finished porridge. For me this is no great justificaton to spend 3x more. Who'm I needing to impress a 6AM, the cat? My belly and colon don't care.
