    2       c            Rolled oats -- (not instant)
    2 1/4   c            Buttermilk
    2 1/2   c            Unbleached flour
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Baking soda
   Recipe by: From Celtic Hearths The day before serving,
   mix the oats with 1-1/4 cups of the buttermilk in a
   bowl. Cover and let stand overnight at room
   temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly
   grease a baking sheet and set aside. Sift together the
   flour, salt and baking soda. Gradually beat the flour
   mixture into the oat-buttermilk mixture, adding
   remaining buttermilk as you work, to form a soft
   dough. You may not need to use the full 2-1/4 cups
   buttermilk. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and
   flatten with hands or floured rolling pin so that it
   forms a circle about 1 inch thick and 9 to 10-inches
   in diameter. With a sharp knife, cut into quarters or
   eighths, as desired, and place on prepared baking
   sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, or until browned. Serve
   warm. Note: These are high in fiber and low in fat,
   provided you don't slather th with butter. Delicious
   with jam or marmalade. Yield: 8 servings.
