Simple uncomplicated hot rice gruel at Ah Chiang Traditional Charcoal Porridge – perfect for cold rainy afternoons. The congee is approximates how my Cantonese grandmother from Hong Kong used to make it in a clay vessel over a charcoal-fired stove. The trademark gooey consistency is achieved after many hours of cooking. (If she boiled it even longer, the starchy stuff could be used as glue for grandkids’ rather messy playtime, without fear that something untoward might happen should they accidentally (or intentionally) ingest the stuff.)
