Now, theres a trip down memory lane.
I thought it was homogonisatin that meant you no longer got the cream on top of the milk.
Salt for me - my method of cooking is very similar to Fred's except I generally add a little milk while it's cooking - unless I'm in the field in which case I will happily cook it just with water and salt, as in the brose mentioned earler.
I do have a confession though - in my youth when I used to go hiking with the cadets, we'd cook up the army ration pack rolled oats (basically porridge oats) and hot chocolate sachets on our hexy stoves. Basically came out like chocolate ready brek! I don't remember us glowing in the dark afterwards though!
Yes, we were all Scotsmen and are not proud of this transgression into non salted porridge now. It was also a bugger to clean off your mess tins afterwards!
Oh yeah - just noticed that was my first post! Been lurking on here for a long while.
Noticing a general trend developing here. Salt in the north and sweet things in the south!!!
Yup, I go with that, I'm in the south and a sweet thing
Mind i'd add chocolate to anything.
Was doing chocolate with chippie chips etc...years afore the deep fried mars bar carry on.
I recall a bit of a Galaxy bar with a piece of a deep fried hamburger being just hmmm....
For some reason deep fried mars bar didn't do it for me....maybe too much vinegar:11doh:
sugar and salt for me rather no sugar than no salt. But it must be eaten out of a wooden bowl with a wooden spoon of course.
has anyone talked about the oats? I find it frustrating that they dont vac pack oats like coffee, they loose their oaty flavour so quickly after milling, just ocasionaly I get fresh ones and the flavour is great, like those vac pac oatcakes.
Sweetened condensed milk That said, I like this wonderful, gooey mess in tea and coffee, even better now Nestle's relaunched it in tubes (Tesco, 69p)
& how much does it cost you when you visit the dentist?
Ahhhhhhh! Tube milk!
Have you tried it in a sandwich yet?
Have you had atube rupture in your pack yet?
Nah - too sweet...and I LIKE sweet!
Fully paid up on Denplan.....
You know, I have never tried this condensed milk thingy...I love evap though, and could drink a whole tin in one draught....
<pauses while you are all gagging>
dried fruit for me please, I dont like salt. (have trained myself not to eat it)
Brown Sugar and UHT milk I buy little 15ml packages at my local service station
maple syrup mmmmmm
Golden syrup and raisens. Lovely
A pinch of salt (and I am not even a Scot) and sugar... Dried grapes..., mmmmm
I once curried porridge
My dad does porridge with salt and water. He's a bit mad though! I like mine done with milk and a buit of sugar, I don't like it mega sweet, just enough so that you can taste the sweetness. Oatsosimple are handy on a trip if you have to save fuel, but to be fair I prefer proper oats. They can also be munched on raw, though they don't taste great!
salt for me, or whisky
