Jamie wrote: "MORNING ALL! Porridge just like my grandad used to make it ! It was a ritual that was for sure. 

"Made the old fashioned way with water and a pinch of salt then into a cold bowl ( helps firm it up ), granulated brown sugar and then leave for a few minutes when it totally transforms into syrupy heaven, then cut with a knife into a criss cross, then like magic the porridge starts to float on the syrup!
