Porridge formed a basis for many dishes, both sweet and savoury. It was served with meat, with vegetables, fruits, honey.

It could be allowed to cool and set in a "porridge drawer", and could then be sliced to be eaten cold or even fried.
Often it would be the households meal for the week, a slice cold each day taken to work.

As sugar only became widely available in Britain in the Eighteenth Century, this is probably why the Scots traditionally eat their porridge with salt

Porridge is benighted sort of meal - but one that has very low fat content (unless, of course, it's drenched in cream) and is good for purifying the blood.

As far as I am aware that some Scots eat their porridge with salt in it. It is only a tale I think

Samuel Johnson's definition of "oats":-
 "A grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland appears to support the people."

There are many tales of how the Scots engage with their porridge - one is that they eat it standing up.
But it is true that when the oats are being cooked they stir it with a stick called a spirtle and when the porridge is cooked they refer to it in the plural and say "They're done". The whole thing's arcane.

Is this where "lick spirtle" comes from to mean inferior.

I haven't heard that but there is "lickspittle" which means a either a sycophant or a parasite.
Incidentally the word spirtle dates from the early sixteenth-century (Shorter OED).
