Spiced Cranberry (overnight) Oatmeal

From Rachel Rappaport of Coconut & Lime

Thoughts from the author: Is there anything easier to make for breakfast than overnight oatmeal? It is super creamy and requires no effort in the morning - perfect for workday mornings, holidays, brunch, etc. I added more sugar than I normally would to oatmeal because cranberries are quite tart but the cereal wasn't sugary, just pleasantly spicy and cranberry filled. 

4 1/2 cups water
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups (fresh) cranberries
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on LOW overnight (6-8 hours) Stir and serve (very nice with a bit of milk on top).

Yield: about 6 servings
