2. Grow yer own tattie

Please see Tattie Growing video:

And Tattie Growing instructions:

Please post photos or pictures of how your tattie grows!

3. Mak tattie scones (potato scones)

If you have one or two tatties left over from dinner, why not make tattie scones the next day? If you have leftover mashed tatties, just add the flour and salt.

If you have more tatties than in the recipe, just increase the other ingredients accordingly 🙂

Ingredients
2 leftover tatties (about 4oz/113.4g)
A little butter and milk
A little salt
1oz/28.3g of Self raising flour

Method

1 Mash up the tatties and butter and milk (as if you were going to have mashed tattie)

2 Add the salt and flour

3 On a floured board, make into a ball and flatten into a circle. Cut into 6 portions

4 Heat up frying pan and add oil/butter until sizzling

5 Add the slices of scone and till golden brown then turn.

Enjoy

Eat hot with your favourite spread!

And to finish, I mind on a wee tale involvin tatties…
