Porridge is one of those things that many people probably find very mundane. But when you start digging into details, you'll discover a lot of interesting tidbits. Like what kind of grains are for animals and what are for humans varies from culture to culture and from time period to other.

Steel Cut Oats

Thank you for sharing. I absolutely LOVE steel cut oats. Much better than rolled, IMHO.

Looking forward to your next podcast topic.

Great show topic, excellent show


I was listening to this while making porridge for my breakfast. I have some steel cut oats - I live in Scotland after all - but I tend to prefer rolled oats, probably because it's what I was brought up on (in England mind you). In Scotland steel cut oats are called pin head oatmeal.

My porridge gets salt and a teaspoon of honey. I'm diabetic so I avoid sugar, but only recently found that honey has a low glycaemic index (about 50 probably) so is not going to give me a sugar high like sugar would - at least not a teaspoon of it!

I used to visit the Far East each year many years ago, and I became quite keen on rice porridge - congee. It's very bland but is eaten with lots of added stuff like pickles and roasted peanuts, and was pretty good for breakfast.

Great show. I enjoyed the ambient sound aspects a lot.

Very informative

This episode has revealed that, although I had heard the term "porridge" before, I never realized how many of my favorite foods it encompassed. Excellent!

Also, thank you for the feedback on the "Opposing views" episode, it is much appreciated.
