Boxty Bread

Creggs, Co. Galway

In Creggs, Boxty was made from black potatoes that were scraped using a piece of tin with holes in it. The tin was fastened to a board and the potatoes scraped into a basin underneath. They were then transferred to a cloth and all of the water was squeezed out. Flour or oatmeal was added to the dried mixture and it was combined and baked on a griddle.
