Pinhead Oatmeal or Steel Cut Oats are considered the oldest and most traditional types of oatmeal. They are made from whole grains, with only the outer husk removed before the groats are cut into pieces. When cooked, Pinhead oatmeal produces a hearty and nutty porridge with a robust flavour. It is a common practice to soak the oatmeal overnight. Pinhead is also an excellent option for enhancing the texture and nutritional value of soups, stews, and haggis. It can be used as a topping for pies, puddings, and crumbles, or as a coating for fish and meat before cooking.

    The delivery came within the timeframe described, which was great. Dependability, not speed, is the important thing. Quality of the goods, excellent.

    Husband and Grandsons have pinhead oatmeal for breakfast every day. I liked the enclosed recipe for biscuits will be trying baking them soon. It’s very handy ordering on line although I do miss the drive to Kelso and visiting the shops! When we visit Kelso it’s usually on a Saturday when GHK are playing Kelso and you are closed!! The delvery was very prompt Royal Mail deliverd very promptly following my on line order. Thanks again.

    I was delighted to receive oats of a quality high enough to win the Golden Spurtle award for grain consistency. Emma was most helpful in taking my order and discussing ways to prepare a traditional porridge. Thank you so much.

    Excellent pinhead porridge oats nutty, creamy with just the right amount of bite. Just moved over to pinhead so it would be useful to have a small recipe sheet describing different ways of cooking pinhead. It seems incredibly versatile. Not a single shop in Cheltenham or Bristol selling pinhead oats and difficult to get hold of from local mill at Shipton.

    I purchased a bag of pin-head (or steel cut) oats, the price and quality of which were outstanding! The flavour and texture of the porridge was miles better than any commercial porridge. I bought the 5kg bag and I have packed kilner jars full of the oats for friends too. I am so pleased with the product and may try the barley next.

    Best pinhead oatmeal. Highly recommended.

    The pinhead oats I could find in local supermarkets were limited to a small, all be it nicely presented, tin can containing approximately 300g. It just wasn’t cutting it. A quick search found a good sized bag of Scottish oats that turned out to be a very nice low waste option. I now have plenty for porridge and experiments with crumbles, stews and stuffing. Life is good.

    Scrummy. I cook it in a pressure cooker or slow cook. Youch of salt and highland Scottish spring water – nothing more.

Q & A

Is this suitable for making overnight oats? Robbie asked on 31 May 2024

Absolutely, pinhead oatmeal is a great choice for using in overnight oats as it retains much of its texture and doesn’t go soggy.
