“When they woke the next morning, the fire had gone out and the Liddle was gone, but he’d left a sausage for them, and a dozen oatcakes folded up neatly in a green and white cloth.

While we liked both of these recipes, the traditional version really matched what we imagined from the book. They are a unique combination of crisp and soft, dry and moist. Because of their texture, they are wonderful with tea, or on a hike. We also liked the contrasting colors that resulted from mixing the blackberries in with the dough. We’d like to nibble them while out in the countryside, followed by a drink from a cold mountain stream. However, we’re glad we aren’t relying on them during a mad survival dash for The Wall…
