My gran vaguely remembers the porridge drawer, and says it wasn't icky. The porridge was very thick and came up easily in slices. She (from the West of Scotland), says she used to have hers as a girl made from fine oatmeal, although others say rolled oats.

On the salt front, my dad makes porridge with half milk, half water, and a good pinch of salt, and my mum tells him off if he stirs it widdershins (anti clockwise)!

I remember when my mother made us eat porridge. She would sprinkle salt on it.

Never stir porridge whiddershins! And - salt helps to bring out the flavor of the oats.

I prefer it without salt. In fact I add very little salt to my food.
