Recipe by: McDougall Bring water and fruit to a boil. Slowly add cereal to boiling water while stirring. Reduce heat to low, cook, stirring frequently, 15 to 30 minutes. The longer the ingredients cook, the softer they will be.

The porridge should be like a thick soup. Do not add milk at the table.

HELPFUL HINTS: Most health food stores sell many kinds of whole grain cereals. Follow directions on package, but increase the amount of water by ½ cup for every two servings.

For added flavor, add a sprinkle of nutmeg, mace, cinnamon, or any combination of these. From the collection of Sue Smith, S.Smith34, Uploaded June 16, 1994
