This morning is mostly grinding oat groats to make more of the Scottish ferment called Sowans. It’s not insubstantial work with a hand-crank Marcato Marga grinder, even with a 6-year old helper (who’s not a bad photographer, eh?!). Hence the glass of bread kvass to ‘keep me going’ ;-) . I’m going to take more pictures this time round, hoping to get a story up later in the week with all of the details of this wonderful, traditional, wise and frugal fermented drink and porridge combo. . In the meantime, this is my ‘Old-Fashioned Kitchen Tool’ for #veryfarmish – I could have bought a much quicker, more whizzy, electric grain grinder. But I opted for this muscle-enhancing beauty instead.
