Pinch salt
Two 7 1/2cm-long cinnamon sticks
1 tsp vanilla essence
55g dried currants

1) In a medium bowl, combine the oats and milk. Cover and let soak in the refrigerator overnight.

2) Transfer the oat mixture to a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan. Add the salt and cinnamon sticks and bring to a boil over high heat.

Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve plain or with your topping of choice.
