1I’m not sure if the water needs to be boiling when you put the oats in and can find no definitive recipe online (it all seems to be microwave and shortcut tips). But I’ll keep looking and write it in when I find it.
2OK This is from the back of Mccann’s can: Into 4 cups of briskly boiling water sprinkle one cup of oatmeal, stirring well. When the porridge is smooth and beginning to thicken, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. To ensure characteristic rich nutty flavor, avoid overcooking.
