  1. Long ago people used make a lot of "stampy." The particular times of the year for making stampy was at Christmas and after the Harvest when the potatoes were dug.
    This is how it is made. First of all a flat piece of timber was got and a piece of tin was holed and nailed on to the timber.
    Then a few large potatoes were well cleaned and scraped against the tin and made into flakes.
    The potato flakes were put into a cloth and the juice was squeezed out.
    The flour was then mixed with the potato flakes and baked.
