      Title: Strones or oatcakes
 Categories: Breads, Irish, Loo
      Yield: 1 Batch
      2 c  Oatmeal (not rolled
           -oats; coarsely
           -ground oats)
      1 pn Baking powder
      1 pn Salt
      1 ts Bacon fat
           Boiling water
  For hundreds of years in Ulster, a large STRONE was made in the shape
  of a cross to celebrate the feast of St. Brigit. Strones were
  traditionally served hot and dripping with freshly made butter.
  Mix the dry ingredients. Melt the fat in a little boiling water and
  use to mix the other ingredients to a stiff dough. Scatter more
  oatmeal over it and knead thoroughly. Roll out as thinly as possible,
  in a circle. Put on a baking sheet. Cut a cross on top so that when
  cooked the oatcake can be easily broken into quarters, the
  traditional FARLS. Bake in a moderate oven (350F, Gas 4, 180C) for
  about 20 min. Serve with lots of butter.
