First porridge

Spelt porridge with mango puree, served in a lovely bowl he got from an elderly lady we know in Maidstone.

We got the lovely bowl from a lady we know in Maidstone. She had eaten from it when she was little kid and her sister as well as her niece. But since she doesn’t have any children herself and wouldn’t therefore have any grandchildren she wanted someone to have it. When she found out I was pregnant she came up and asked if I wanted it. I felt really unworthy of it in a way, you know. As it was clear it was very precious to her. But I could not say no, when she so kindly offered and picked me for some reason. Good thing is it’s being used and we think of her. Lovely Marjorie.

Made Aiden some porridge after this recipe, and translated to English it goes a little something like this:

  • 1 tbsp ground organic pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp organic spelt flour
  • 100 – 150 ml of water
  • unsalted butter or rapeseed oil
  • Mango puree

Basically you just mix the first 3 ingredients, bring to boil – add butter/oil if you want and serve with mango puree.
