Next, put a (quart /0.95 liter) zip-closure cooking pouches into a baggy rack. Then, pour the dried fruit, sugar, water, vanilla, orange and lemon zest into the cooking pouch and once again use the displacement method (Archimedes’ principle) to remove the air and zip the seal closed. Submerge the bag in the water bath alongside the oatmeal.
Six – ten hours later, remove the pouches from the water bath. Give the oatmeal pouch a quick shake and pour straight into two bowls.
Open the pouch with the stewed fruit and spoon the fruit compote on top of the oatmeal and enjoy.
