Recipe:
Get a dozen big potatoes wash and dry them well. Then get a scraper and scrape them into a baisin. A scraper is an oval shaped piece of tin with several little holes in it.

Method:
Catch the scraper in one hand and the potatoe in the other. Rub the potatoe against the scraper until it becomes a frothy mass.
Then put the scraped potatoes into a muzlin bag and squeeze the water out of it. Then add flour, salt, and soda and mix it. Then put a little of it into a hot greased pan and let it bake for about a half an hour at least.
