A taste of Scotland – Oatcakes and butter

We had a wonderful return visit from Katie the farmer, with another fantastic RHET representative in Marion Sutherland. We learned the processes by which milk was produced and oats grown on our farms become oatcakes. Most excitingly, we got to examine oats and grind them in to flour. The flour was mixed with other ingredients to make oatcakes. We also had the opportunity to churn butter from cream with a lot of enthusiastic shaking!

“I liked learning about the oats.” said Orla

“Yes, I liked taking the husk off the seed and looking at the seed.” agreed Josh.

I liked shaking the cream to make butter” added Emilie.
