From Deirdre Barr

Here's the recipe for boxty, as per the Monica Sheridan cookbook.
2 Large raw potatoes
1 teaspoon baking-soda
2 cups of mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons flour (approx)
1 teaspoon salt.

Grate the raw potatoes & squeeze out the liquid. Add to the mashed potatoes & add salt. Mix the soda with the flour and add to the potatoes. Roll out on a floured board to a circle of a 1/2" thickness. Cut in 4 quarters & put on an ungreased griddle. Cook on a gentle heat for 30 to 40 minutes, turning the bread at half-time. The farls or quarters, should be well browned on bothe sides. Serves 4 You may add a teaspoon of caraway seeds, if you like.
