What’s the difference between jumbo and porridge oats? Jumbo oats are a pressed oat, flattened with the bran on. They are chewier when eaten raw, though become creamier and richier when cooked.

There are many ways to prepare porridge. The most nutritious of all, after the whole oat, are the pinhead/steel cut oats. These take a little longer to prepare, but in the authors humble opinion make the most satisfying of feeds.

Why are oats so good for us?
