This is what excited oats look like! I came into the kitchen this morning to find this jar of oats and water had fermented it’s way up, and almost out, of the jar. . There is no starter here; the mix is just oats and water. The power of natural yeasts and bacteria never fails to astound me! . I stirred this jar, re-mixing the solids, then re-covered it and put it back to continue doing its thing. In a few days time from this I’ll have ‘sowans’ porridge and ‘swats’ probiotic drink. Both are traditional Scottish ferments. . This is my favourite way to ferment oats. I shared it in my video course over at @thefermentationschool. There’s a link to it in my story today if you want to take a look.
