Making Boxty

Killeeneen More, Craughwell, Co. Galway

Boxty was made by scraping a potato onto a board using a piece of tin. The juice that came from potatoes was used to make starch. The potatoes were mixed with salt and flour and a drop of milk. The mixture was divided into 4 parts and put in a pan to bake.
