No Porridge gunk down the sink

I finally sussed it this trip.....

I've used a variety of wooden spoons/spatulas, wiping out with damp kitchen paper before the final wash....

What works really well is a silicone spatula - flexible enough to clean it all off the pan and even off your bowl when your done. Easy peasy.

We used to have a rubber, or synthetic rubber, one in the family home.

They are excellent for scraping soft material - as a kid I used it for cleaning the cake mix bowl and licking it.

I have been looking for similar for years but nobody has heard of them.

Do tell where you got yours please, pretty please.

They are easily found over here Geoff

Aldi frequently has them

The silicone isn’t as soft and flexible as the rubber ones but they work OK

My rubber ones are all but done now, but only seen them now in silicon

At least I think they are rubber

Do you not have a Microwave Oven?

Porridge is so simple to cook in a Microwave oven: the oven will emit a metallic sound as three or four pulses to identify when a cooking period is completed; it's often referred to as a 'ding' sound.

The Ding sound is also used to identify the method of cooking used e.g.Chicken Ding, Baked Potato ding and Curry ding to name but few.

Never had a microwave oven, either in a house and would be useless in a MH as we are never on EHU, even the odd time we have been on a campsite - we do not even carry a cable.


So it was all gobbledegook to me.


Anyway Jean was talking about scraping out receptacles. Do microwaves do that?

I don't need a scraper, I use the labrawash pre-wash cycle. Perfect, job done and a smiley dog as a bonus.
patp, aldra and JanHank like this.

Is it better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission?

Nope.

One eats Porridge Ding from receptacle used in the cooking; deft use of the spoon, metal, wood, plastic, whatever, means there's no wastage ...all goes down the hatch rather than the sink.

Takes 3-4 minutes to cook the way I like it...no lumps, no burned bits Traditionalists can still use a Spurtle.

Sans dinger there's always the cold method: soaking (in the receptacle one eats from) overnight ... keep meaning to try it one of these times ...not sure Ifn I'd like sloppy cold porridge ...

Nowt so queer as folk.


If I made porage again it would be Scotts Porage Oats in milk and boiled(just) for 2-3 mins.


I do not know what 'porridge' is.
