Description

Oats are great for you and make a perfect breakfast when the weather gets colder; but do you know how to make the perfect porridge? Well the Scots introduced us to Spurtles.

The spurtle (or "spurtel", "spurtil", "spirtle" or "spartle")[1] is a wooden Scottish kitchen tool, dating from the fifteenth century, that is used to stir porridge, soups, stews and broths.

The rod-like shape means that porridge can be stirred without congealing and forming lumps,[2][3] unlike a spoon that would have a dragging effect during stirring, and the low surface area reduces the chances of porridge sticking to the instrument.

Spurtles are made from wood, including beech (in the UK), cherry wood (in the US) and maple (in Canada). They come in a range of sizes. Traditional spurtles have thistles at the top, while modern ones often have a smooth taper.

The custom is that a spurtle should be used to stir in a clockwise direction with the right hand

Our spurtles are made so they won't sink into the pan when you take a rest from stirring!
I find them also good for making batter and dough

Ours are hand-turned in our West Wales Wales workshop
You can have from one to a dozen

You can buy this item or have one handmade to order, so it is possible to incorporate your choice of wood or other customisations. Please feel free to message us here or on Facebook to discuss these options.

All pieces are handmade in our home workshop in Ceredigion, Wales. We use traditional methods and techniques for most operations but occasionally, for detailed designs or where accuracy is paramount, we employ technology to help us. We also mix our own lacquers, oils and waxes.

We use locally sourced and salvaged materials, particularly wood and slate, where we can. Our own garden and the fields owned by our farming neighbours are also a bountiful source of supplies. Many of the items in the shop originated from our log pile. Sometimes, when appropriate, materials, i.e. clock movements, glass, brass, aluminium, etc. are bought in from external suppliers.

Keep an eye on our blog where we provide more details of how we do things here at Time4Light.
