In a small sauce pan, combine all ingredients except ½ C water and blended flour. Bring to a boil. When water begins to boil mix flour with ½ C water until it becomes a thick paste. Slowly stir mixture into the boiling water. Reduce heat to med- low. Stir until porridge thickens. Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir every 3 to 4 minutes. If porridge becomes too thick stir in ½ cup water at a time to thin it. Add more milk or sugar to sweeten as desired.
