Chef's note: Our favorite topping are macerated fruits and nuts. Take 1 cup of your favorite fruit and nut combination. Add 1/.4 cup bourbon and steep for 30 mins. Heat a saute pan and add butter, add brown sugar and fruit mixture. Cook on medium until slightly thickened. Serve on top of hot oatmeal.
