  • About

When I took the line from an old children’s song as the title of this chapter, it occurred to me that I didn’t have an oatmeal soup. I was sure that the Scots, with their love of oatmeal, must have one. I looked in Elizabeth Craig’s Hotcb Potch. I tinkered with the recipe a great deal, so blame it on me if you do not like what I find to be a very comforting soup. If making it ahead of time, slightly undercook the oats so they will be perfect when the soup is reheated
