The poor people in olden times had not much choice in bread. Having a bad government more inclined to starve than to relieve them, they were not able to buy flour and they used to make bread of potatoes. Boxty they used to call him. They used to scrape the raw potatoes and work them together and bake it. It should be eaten when hot. They used always to grind their corn with two flat stones called quarns. After working hard all days on the land, they had to grind the corn at nigh and make and bake the bread for the next day.
