Those of you who have been following my blog for a while may remember that last year I entered a recipe in Bob’s Red Mill’s annual Spar for the Spurtle United States Porridge Making Championship. I love a good competition and the grand prize for this Olympics of Oatmeal is high: $2,500 in cash plus an all-expense paid trip for two to the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship in Scotland.
Entering the competition requires a bit of creativity. First, create an original recipe involving Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. The recipe must be able to be made in 30 minutes or less using only two stovetop burners. Second, create a video no longer than 3 minutes detailing your recipe, upload it to YouTube, and complete the official entry form on the Spar for the Spurtle website. From all eligible entries, 3 semi-finalists will be selected to compete in the Spar for the Spurtle finals at Bob’s Red Mill World Headquarters near Portland, Oregon on August 16. Semi-finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip to Portland and a host of Bob’s Red Mill-themed prizes. More information about the contest may be found here.
To encourage entries into Spar for the Spurtle, I am pleased to host a giveaway in conjunction with Bob’s Red Mill. The first 5 people who enter the Spar for the Spurtle competition and leave a comment on this blog post with link to your video submission will each win a prize pack featuring tasty goods from Bob’s Red Mill. The prize pack includes a package each of Steel Cut Oats, Scottish Oats, 7 Grain Pancake Mix and Buttermilk Pancake Mix. This giveaway is only open to residents of the United States. The giveaway will end at 12 noon PDT on July 23 or when 5 entries have been received and verified, whichever comes first.
