I find the porridge an acquired taste. I dont think I've had the plain porridge before but oddly I've found if I make it in a shallower bowl and use just slightly less water, I can eat it a lot better ? Weird.
i boil the kettle, pour hot water over the porrige in a bowl, mix it squashing the lump bits a little then microwave for a full minute, mix again and cool, you can change the texture and consistency to suit you by adding or reducing the amount of water you add, someday i have it runny for breakfast but if i am hungry i make it quite thick for evening times, xx
I don't have a microwave, I heat up my water up in the kettle, then I put my mix in a sep pan, add water on top, mix it with my whisker on medium heat for 1,5 minutes, it just comes out so delish, no bits of gunk at all.
