Making Flummery

Gortnadeeve West, Co. Galway

This was made with oaten meal and hot water and mill seeds. The seeds are first put into a vessel and left to soak for a few days until they are sour. Other people say that Shearing should be boiled in a pot until it turns to jelly. It is very good for a cold or a cough.
