FLUMMERY

After being ground at the local mill, the ground oats were sifted to produce a fine flour which was used for flummery (Llumry in north Wales, Sucan in south Wales). This was a mixture of oat flour and butter milk that was allowed to go sour. The liquid and heavier matter were allowed to separate; the liquid was poured off and the remainder carefully boiled. It was eaten in bowls with wooden spoons with milk or skimmed milk.
