OMG - I thought this was going to be a thread about all the hubbub surrounding the controversy of this year's Golden Spurtle.

I was all set for the thread the other day, but knew it would trigger my fanclub and I just couldn't be bothered with the pointless miserable old tosspots.


But as the thread is here it seems rude not to bring this to the masses, even though this is an Albion forum exclusively for the discussion of all things Brighton and Hove Albion.
I hadn't heard of the controversy about the Golden Spurtle but, now I have, the winner wasn't making porridge, unlike some of the marvelous recipes on here.

And I didn't realise this 'is an Albion forum exclusively for the discussion of all things Brighton and Hove Albion.' as the majority of threads seem to be NBHAR!

Keep the recipes coming please.

T'is always the funniest of complaints from those devoid of imagination and awareness!


I too missed the kurfuffle surrounding The Golden Spurtle until it came up on a favoured podcast The Cryptid Factor.

The Cryptid Factor - a show dedicated to the weird and the wonderful, and in particular, Cryptozoology.

Obviously Porridge was the second news story.

Jumbo oats, water, oat milk, mixed seeds, whole nuts (pecan, hazlenut, walnut, one Brasil!), cinnamon. Serve with a spoon of my wife's homemade strawberry (allotment) jam. Yum on a chilly morning 👍

Quaker Oats, semi skimmed milk in a milk pan. Heat up milk, pour in oats, stir for about 5 minutes. Serve with cream and dark sugar or no sugar and just sultanas. or a grated apple.

Mrs CJ quite keen on Kefir soaked oats and an ever changing mix of nuts and seeds and dried fruits. *(is that porridge ? )

No, not Norman Stanley Fletcher.

We've started eating porridge again and I'm wondering how others make theirs.

We use a mug of Flavahan's jumbo oats, a mug of water and one of semiskinned milk (sometimes Oatly).
Soak overnight.
Bring to bubble while stirring.
Adorn with yoghurt, banana, chia seeds (we are in Fiveways) and maybe honey, or as an alternative, some warmed summer fruit mix from the freezer section of the supermarket.
Scoff.

Anyone do salt?

Cannot stand the stuff, but that's a Ruislip thing I guess.
Hope alls well :thumbsup:

Cooked or uncooked?


...........and blimey! - that's nearly a pound of strawberries - a meal on its own! And three bananas - how many people is this bucketful supposed to serve?

I can't get over the amount of cinnamon being used. I'll give it a go though it sounds grim. Thanks for the Ivor Cutler, @smillie'schildren. And [MENTION=28934]AmexRuislip[/MENTION] - that's where I first had it!

First I dig a pit in the garden. Under a tree is best. Maple is best.

Then I infuse a layer of charcoal. This would be from our wood stove.

Then I mix in oats and herring.

I cover with peat and leave for six months.

In the spring I remove the peat (sifting) and spoon the goo into a gourd.

Into the oven with two ounces of bee's wax, wasp's honey and cat milk.

When the skin is brown I ladle into a porcelain bowl, add a little pepper and loganberry jus....

Heaven.
