Expedition Porridge


  • 300ml Water
  • 1 cup/50g Porridge Oats
  • 4-5 tablespoons of powdered milk
  • 4 tablespoons (handful) raisins
  • 7 chopped apricots
  • 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar

Add all the dry ingredients together and bag up and add to your food supplies. When you want to eat it add water and mix. Heat until the it looks and tastes like porridge. And in the words of Mr Ramsey – Expedition Porridge. Done.

All the measurements are rough but seemed to work well in my experiments in the kitchen. It can get pretty stodgy if you don’t eat it immediately and if you don’t like it then I suspect it might have a second use repairing split boats.

I’ve just bagged up twelve portions of this to take to Nepal later in the week – fingers crossed.
