Porridge you say? Well we have been in Ontario for two weeks now and so far, it has rained, snowed, sleeted and been quite cold. I should have had lots of time to send new posts, but moving around has its drawbacks with, aka Internet problems.
Today? It’s raining as it always seems to do when we travel anywhere in the world. Fortunately, our friend Joan on Howe Island where we were staying made us this great porridge yesterday morning to warm our bodies. It was great, as was our visit with she and Gary!! Thanks Joan and Gary for a wonderful visit!!
So, for all you northerners, here is the recipe made by Joan…
4 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats (available at Loblaws …you guys in Mexico can buy rolled oats)
1’2 cup milk
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1’2 cup chopped dried figs
1/2 cup raisins or chopped dates
I think you could use almost any combination of dried fruits, i.e. mango, apples, bananas, etc.
Put all ingredients into the slow cooker on low just before you go to bed (assuming you don’t go to bed at 7 pm…or get up at noon!)
When you wake up it will be ready! Next I will look for slow cooker coffee…since I can’t figure out how to set the coffee maker yet…haha
