Making Boxty

Killeeneen More, Craughwell, Co. Galway

To make boxty you need to scrape potatoes and mix with something like wholemeal flour and some salt. The mixture is then kneaded well, cut into 4 pieces and placed on a hearth griddle. There must be a good fire under the cake to make sure it bakes well. It must cook for about half an hour.
