“And when you have that concoction under your belt, you’ve got something. Cold days become soft and balmy and mountain slopes as little hills.” – R.M. Patterson in his book “Trail to the Interior” regarding a proven porridge recipe.

“I made a big cooking of it, and the prescription is as follows: to a fifty-fifty mixture of cracked wheat and large, unbroken rolled oats add what butter can be spared and a handful of raisins.  Simmer in the frying pan with [bacon fat].  Atop the cooked porridge lay a large pat of butter and a slice of cheese. Sprinkle the whole as liberally as circumstances permit with brown sugar.  Then eat.”
