Stove Top:
In a saucepan, combine milk, water, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring often. Gradually add oatmeal and cherries. Reduce heat and let simmer, stirring often, until the oatmeal is tender – about 3-5 minutes.

In a large microwavable bowl, mix milk, water, cinnamon, oatmeal, and cherries. Cook on high, 4-5 minutes, stirring once.

Once cooked, remove porridge from heat or microwave oven, cover and let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the almonds and add more milk to taste.
