 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  cup           hops
    1      cup           water
    1      medium        potato
      1/4  cup           flour
      1/2  cup           cornmeal
                         cornmeal -- for dipping
 
 Place 1/4 c. hops in a pan and cover with 1 c. water. Let this come to a boil, 
 reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes with lid on pan. It should yield 1/3 c. hops
  water after straining. 
 
 Peel and slice the potato into another pot. Use just enough water to cover and 
 boil until well done. Drain; it should yield 1 c. of potato liquid.
 
 Mix hops water and potato liquid, and while still hot, pour over 1/4 c. flour a
 nd 1/2 c. cornmeal, making a stiff paste. Let cool; then roll into cakes, using
  2 T. of paster for each cake. Dip cakes in cornmeal and roll until easily hand
 led.
 
 Dry for several days on wire rack, turning daily. They may be used immediately 
 , but they must be perfectly dry before storing in a cool place or the refriger
 ator. Makes 16 cakes.
