Nonstick cooking spray 

1 cup steel-cut oats 

1 cup wild rice 

1/2 cup pearled barley  

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 

Two 4-inch strips orange peel 

1 cinnamon stick 

3/4 cup dried cranberries 

3/4 cup pure maple syrup 

3/4 cup pecans, chopped 


Coat the inside of a slow cooker that holds 6 quarts with nonstick cooking spray. Add 12 cups cold water, oats, rice, barley, salt, nutmeg, orange peel and cinnamon stick, and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours, until the grains are tender but not too soft. 

Chop pecans. Thin out the porridge with hot water if desired. Ladle 1 cup of the porridge into warm bowls and sprinkle servings with 1 tablespoon cranberries, 1 tablespoon maple syrup and 1 tablespoon pecans.
