    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!

    Aye,
    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.

    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!

    Sugar in porridge is like salt in tea yyyUUUUUUkkkk

    1 cup porridge oats
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    2 tbls of cream
    1 1/2 tea spoon salt
    bring to the boil for 5 mins stirring constantly
    pour into casserole dish and let it sit for 2 mins
    pour over ice cold milk

    Puts hairs on yer eyelids, nothing finer on a cold winter's morning.
