Silly Vedics . . . paps are for kids!

So I'm reading through the Vedas, and I come across this nifty Sacrifice of Five Oblations that I'd like to work up into a ritual. The problem is, I don't have quite enough background to fully understand it. The main problem (and it's a big one) is understanding what exactly the oblations are:

fried grain
mush
the pap
the cake
the milk mess

What kind of grain? What sort of mush? Wtf is pap? What kind of cake? Milk is usually messy, but what's special about this?

I think I can figure out the rest of it, but these five oblations are obviously vital. . . but no instruction is given in context to make 'em.

So, it looks like I'm off to the beginning of the Vedas to read straight through. . . yippee-kai-yai-ay, and all that.

   He who knows the sacrifice with the five oblations propsers with the sacrifice of five oblations.

Yeah, I could live with prospering.
