    Most of the porridge that I've seen in Scotland is soaked in water overnight, mainly due to it lying on the pavement outside pubs and kebab shops.

    When you soak it overnight do you then drain it and use filtered salty water

    I believe Rhodri Giggs has a great family recipe.

    You’ve been eating it 6 mornings a week, for months!
    Are you in Strangways?

    Lol. How did you guess?

    TBH the benefits are good, very low fat, keeps the cholesterol down and hunger pangs to snack on other food. And there's goodness in the chopped dates/walnuts and honey.

    I know all the benefits. I just eat too much of it “oats”. Anything with oats in it!

    I do mine on a low heat with semi skimmed milk. I don't bother soaking the oats, but what I've noticed is sometimes when the milk is at boiling point and the oats arn't soft enough, I remove from the hob for about 5 mins,maybe add a splash more milk. Then reheat a minute or two gently on a low heat and it's enough to cook the oats through.

    Our resident Jocks should be doing porridge, not making it.
