Hou ar ye? Today’s post pays homage to our fans and to the Scottish heritage of oats. Oats are a popular crop in Scotland because they do well in the wet, brief growing season. The crop is so popular that students were once allowed to leave the university the first Monday of every month to collect oats for their food. This tradition later evolved into the holiday Oatmeal Monday. In addition, many Scottish dishes such as haggis, skirlie and porridge all include oats as a major ingredient.
Thus, we were mighty eager to try a recipe submitted to us by one of our fans. Baps are a common food item in Scotland and can be eaten anytime spread with butter or jam, or buttered with bacon or sausage in between. They are so delicious you’ll want to tap your feet as you enjoy Pam’s Scottish MMM Baps “du daps duba du daps yeah yeah…” Ye’re welcome!
