  1. The bread made in this district in olden times was made from oaten-meal, which was made from (wheat) grown locally.The flour was also made locally. Very few of the modern people remember grindstones, but they all remember having heard of them. The ingredients used in making oaten meal bread were; oaten-meal, salt, breadsoda, and sour milk.
    In some houses enough bread was baked in one day for a week. A bastable was the name of the vessel in which the bread was baked. None of the people remember bread being baked in front of the fire. Griddle bread was never made in this district. Special bread was made for weddings or birthday parties.
