Easy Workday Oatmeal in a Jar

Love Pinterest.  Are you on there?  This one come from there and here specifically.

I did this last night and today's morning oatmeal was topped with frozen mixed berries. Yum!

1 2/3 cups steel-cut oats
4 cups water
Large pinch salt
5 pint-sized Mason jars with lids (I used wide-mouth jars)
Large saucepan
Bring the oats, water and salt to a boil. Simmer for about 3 minutes then turn off the heat. Ladle the oats and water into the jars. Cover the jars tightly with their caps and rings. Leave on the counter overnight. (I did this, you can put in fridge if you want but see her notes on her post) The next morning, put all but one of the jars in the refrigerator. Take the cap off one jar and stir up the oatmeal inside. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, or until quite hot. Add any milk, raisins, or other mix-ins. Enjoy!
