tips on porridge please

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I love porridge. For breakfast I cook it with water (double quantity to oats) and add yogurt and honey - or occasionally golden syrup (nice but naughty). I occasionally have savoury porridge, adding a vegetable stock cube to the pot when cooking. Sainsbury's organic oats are quite creamy, other brands more rough, both are nice though I slightly prefer the larger flakes. Chopped apple is a nice addition too

    Anyone got any tips for other ways to serve/cook porridge ?


    Must away to stir my porridge this very moment ...

    Hope everyone has a good Friday

    It used to be the thing to add a pinch of salt but with blood pressure warnings on salt intake it is now a no go area.

    Myself I just add honey and milk. Always stir anti clockwise to confuse the devil if he is lurking over your left shoulder.

  7. For special occassions:

    50:50 cream and milk with a dessertspoonful of whisky added just before eating, and stirred in... Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    The healthy version of this is to cut out the cream.
     
  8. always make mine the night before....gives the oats time to soak all the flavour up... in the morning i like to add sultanans.. and some more milk..
    NEVER make mine with water............. always use milk.....( my dad loved his with salt)
    and HAS to be lump free... got to be smooth and creamy for me.....
