  • one large cupful oatmeal

  • one quart cold water

  • half a cupful buttermilk

  • one pint cold water

  • a little sugar and ginger


  • Leave the oatmeal to steep in the quart of cold water and buttermilk for two nights until soured.

  • Then pour off the surface water and pour two tablespoonfuls of the mixture through a fine sieve.

  • Add to it the pint of cold water, flavour with a little sugar and ginger, and boil for about ten minutes.

  • It should be as thin as milk after boiling.

  • The remainder of the mixture may be kept fresh for a few days by draining the surface water and replacing it with fresh water.
