I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Making traditional Scottish oatcakes…but can’t help going a little off-piste!
The oatcakes are freshly rolled oats, lard and salt. After biscuit-cutting what felt like hundreds of them, I had this bit of the dough left. There were some very ripe figs in the fridge and the thought of the flavours together pushed me into making an oat cake and fig pasty!
Check my story today for more oat cake pictures. I’m oat-crazy at the moment, researching an article for #wapf and making all sorts of ancestral oat dishes in my kitchen.
What’s your favourite way to eat oats? Have you got a secret recipe up you sleeve I should know about?!
