Crispy Crofting
Posted: 09/09/2015

Lochcarron primary school pupils harvest their heritage tatties and turn them into crisps.

Lochcarron primary school have access to a croft about a mile away from the school but this year they also planted some of the seed tatties supplied by Crofting Connections in their school grounds.  This week they harvested them and made crisps for the cooks to taste to see which potatoes would make good crisps ‘All we did was cut them up thinly and put into the microwave for 3 mins or more until crispy and that was it readymade crisps. No additives very healthy’ . You can see the cooks sampling the children’s work and apparently were very impressed.

Although the P1-4 pupils had a very busy year last year, they still managed to keep up with the felting and craft work of the Crafty Crofters.
