The Old Rectory at the Ulster Folk Museum

Gillian shows us how quick and easy it actually is to make traditional Irish soda farls on a griddle in a home which is estimated to be 300 years old. The house originally stood about one mile east of Toomebridge before being dismantled and moved to the museum in 1971. One of its residents was a Captain Archibald McCallion who had fought as an officer in the British forces during the American War of Independence. Thanks so much Gillian for allowing us to join you!

We had been thinking recently about writing an article to do with Irish/Northern Irish traditional food. We could have had hearty food such as stew, champ, colcannon and boxty. We could also have had the very strangely named vegetable roll which still puzzles Martha who isn’t from around these parts! She thought she was getting something healthy the first time I gave her it so was rather bemused when she bit into what tasted like a sausage! Apparently it contains leeks, which makes it qualify as a vegetable product. Christmas dinner contains parsley in its stuffing so it probably qualifies as a salad in Ireland by that reasoning! In the end we decided to downscale slightly, for now at least, and talk about that other favourite food type … Irish bread! View Post
