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 …

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
