Start the day off “just right.”
(from Goldilocks and the Three Bears originally told by Robert Southey)
If you are as picky as Goldilocks and don’t want your porridge too salty or too sweet; too thick or too thin, below is a recipe that is “just right.” It is so yummy that everyone will want it, but please remember, don’t feed the bears!
Oatmeal Porridge Recipe:
4 cups (1 liter) water
1 cup (180 grams) steel-cut Irish Oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
Brown or White Sugar and Rich Milk or Cream
Oatmeal Porridge Recipe: In a medium sized saucepan bring the 4 cups of water to boil. Sprinkle the oatmeal over the boiling water, stirring constantly to prevent any lumps from forming. Add the salt and reduce the heat to low and allow the porridge to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with brown or white sugar and rich milk or cream.
Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for another morning. To reheat, simply add a little hot water or milk to thin out the porridge and then place in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until warm.
Makes 4 servings.
