Preparation Instructions

Find a quart container with a lid – a recycled yogurt container works well – and place all dry ingredients and banana (if used). Mix lightly and add the water. Close the container and let stand at room temperature overnight – four hours minimum. To prepare, pour contents of the container into a medium saucepan and cook over a medium / medium-low heat for about fifteen minutes to remove excess water. Continue to cook for several more minutes, if desired.
