  8. Regarding Chef #219653’s review all I can say is NO KIDDING Back then she used Butter; then when it was said butter wasn’t good for a person she changed it to margarine. She used to have to moisten the oats first (patting out the excess water) and then add them to the boiled ingredients. I believe it took about 40 – 45 minutes to do the recipe back then ( I can’t remember for sure) and I cannot ask her as she died in September 1979.
  9. Thank for you review as it made me clarify original recipe.
