Flumery Oatmeal

Skehaghard, Co. Galway

Sometimes if milk was in short supply in the area, oatmeal could be soaked overnight in water to make ‘flumery’. This was then used instead of buttermilk in oatmeal bread. If there was a small amount of milk available ‘sweadeen’ could be made by adding milk and sugar to the oats
