Bob’s Red Mill Giveaway Time: 3 Winners!
To suit up for the sparring, three of you will receive a package of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats (your choice of Regular, Quick Cooking, Organic, Organic Quick Cooking, or new Certified Gluten Free) plus a Myrtle Wood Spurtle!
A spurtle is a traditional Scottish cooking implement used to stir oats as they cook and slowly soften in the pot. Each Myrtle Wood Spurtle from Bob’s Red Mill (pictured below) is handcrafted in Oregon with its own unique shape. It is said that stirring your morning porridge clockwise with a spurtle as it cooks will bring good luck!
