Scottish nibbles

FB_IMG_1447362866538

 

Scotland is famous for naturally healthy oat-based products such as porridge and oatcakes – the latter being first produced as far back as the 14th century when Scottish soldiers would carry a sack of oatmeal which they would moisten and heat on a metal plate over a fire when they were hungry.

 

Today, they are commonly enjoyed as an accompaniment to soups, or after dinner with cheese and chutney.
