Stir-in ideas! Grandma's Original Gold Standard Molasses; Maple Grove Farms of Vermont Pure Maple Syrup; Polaner All Fruit; fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or bananas. Stovetop: 1. Bring water and salt to a boil. (Or, if using milk, just bring to a boil.) 2. Gradually add Cream of Wheat, stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended. 3. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 2-1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Cool slightly. 1 Serving: 1-1/4 cups water or milk; 1/8 tsp salt (optional); 3 tbsp Cream of Wheat. 2 Servings: 2 cups water or milk; 1/4 tsp salt (optional); 1/3 cup Cream of Wheat. 4 Servings: 4 cups water or milk; 1/2 tsp salt (optional); 3/4 cup Cream of Wheat. Microwave: 1 Serving: 1. Mix 3 tbsp Cream of Wheat, 3/4 cup water or milk and a dash of salt in 1-quart microwaveable bowl or measuring cup. 2. Microwave on high 1 minute. Stir with wire whisk. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir again. Cool slightly. Caution: Bowl will be hot; carefully remove from microwave using pot holders. Note: Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate. Overheating can cause cereal to boil over. Tips for Best Results: When preparing with milk, watch carefully, stirring to prevent milk from boiling over. For thinner cereal stir in 1 to 2 tbsp additional hot water or milk for each serving. For thicker cereal, let stand a few minutes. Infant & Toddler Use: Follow conventional directions using 1/2 cup water or milk and 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp Cream of Wheat, omitting salt. (Cereal will be very thick.) After cooking, stir in infant formula or milk to desired consistency and temperature.
