comment Nattou - white dots on it safe to eat?
Wow, great answer! The picture is exactly what mine looked like. For bonus "chemistry" points: why/how do those amino acid crystals form...?

comment Is it okay to boil milk (making steel cut oats)
I'm not so sure about that. I've had "good" oatmeal and the oats blended in with the milk perfectly. In my case, the cheesy milk film was completely separate from the oats themselves, like I said I could lift it out with a spoon separate from the oats themselves. Not the most appetizing texture or taste. I would rather figure out how to get around this than cop out for instant oats. I'll definitely give it another try.

comment Is it okay to boil milk (making steel cut oats)
Thank you, the behavior you described is exactly what was happening. After boiling it foamed so much it almost overflowed, and when I turned it down it started making the film. All in all it didn't taste like my ideal oatmeal, so I'll probably go with the boil-water-and-add-cold-milk-after method next time

The film is pretty thick and I would say the consistency of melted cheese, didn't seem to be mixing back into the oats well. I was able to lift it out with a spoon. I wish I knew a bit more about chemistry to say what the behavior is for sure, it could certainly be from the oats.
