Method

  1. In a pan, warm the apple juice and water with the nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.
  2. Add the dried fruit, apple and lemon zest and simmer gently for about 20 minutes, or until the fruit is soft. Carefully remove the cloves.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the oats, skimmed milk and water in a separate, heavy-based pan and gently bring to the boil, stirring frequently.
  4. Simmer the porridge for about 5 minutes until the desired consistency is reached. Add more water if necessary.
