Old Fashioned Porridge

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Bergy

I have posted the original recipe, it is from "The Governor's Inn" in Vermont, however for my liking I cut the sweets in half. It is really good either way. In the restaurant it is served with vanilla ice cream on top and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

This is really tasty. Like Bergy said, cut the sweet in half. I have a family of six so I doubled the recipe but not the sweetener. I also adapted a few things to suit our family. I used chopped dried apples for raisins and that tasted really yummy. I also used honey instead of syrup because I was out, and left the sugar out entirely because I am avoided refined sugars. It was still plenty sweet. I added 1/2 tsp. maple flavor. And lastly, I used pecans instead of walnuts. It was really delicious and my family gobbled it up!
