The Golden Spurtle trophy will be coming to Oregon!
A spurtle, besides just a fun word to say, is a wand-like thing usually made of wood that is traditionally used to stir porridge while it cooks (and yes, you can find myrtle spurtles in Oregon!). The annual competition, held in Carrbridge, Scotland, celebrates Scotland’s traditional national dish, porridge. This is the first time an American team has entered the competition, held in Glasgow, Scotland, and they came away as the big winner!
