Taken from this book and heavily adapted (but I had to keep the wonderful name)
The recipe is for drink that reminds me of barley water...(but without the fuss of bringing the barley to the boil)
I put 4oz/110g of oatmeal into a bowl (I didn't have any fine oatmeal so used pinhead oatmeal instead) with 1.5oz/40g of rosemary sugar. Then I added a chopped lemon. The chopped lemon could easily be substituted for a good glug of bottled lemon juice. (The oatmeal could be substituted with rolled oats or boiled barley)
|4oz/110g oatmeal, 1.5oz/40g sugar & a chopped lemon|
Cover with boiled water, stir to dissolve the sugar then top up with a litre of warm water. At this point I stirred in a generous handful of torn lemon balm & mint leaves.
Leave to cool, then drink...
|It tastes delicious!|
