Porridge Recipe


As a lot of people know, we love our porridge and eat it every day.
We are often asked for the recipe and have probably shared it on here many times, but as we do constantly seem to tweak the ingredients - we thought we would share it again, so here is our current recipe. 
We use all organic ingredients too! 💚

Porridge Recipe
Serves 2
Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan.
100g/4oz oats 
1 teaspoon ground rosehips

1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground dried seaweed (we use kelp)
2 heaped tablespoons of a ground seed mix (we usually grind 1 tbsp linseeds and 1 tsp each hemp, chia and pumpkin)
1 tablespoon dried fruit
2 tablespoons fresh berries (we use blueberries, blackberries or blackcurrants) 
1 or 2  chopped apples (with skin left on)
2 chopped bananas
Approx 1 litre cold water

1 heaped tsp blackstrap molasses (add to the porridge before serving)

Heat slowly, adding half of the water and stirring every few minutes - you may need to add extra water as the porridge thickens. If the porridge starts to stick, add a drop of boiling water and just keep simmering gently for around 20 minutes. If the porridge is bubbling, turn the heat right down. 
Once it's ready, serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, a splash of maple syrup or a splodge of jam and some plant milk. 

Enjoy!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
