1 quarter cockles

1 oz butter

1 oz oatmeal

1 egg

cooking fat

2 pint water

3 oz flour



1. Leave the cockles to stand in slightly salted water sprinkled with oatmeal overnight. 

2. Drain and scrub thoroughly to remove grit and dirt. 

3. Place in a saucepan of salted water and boil for 3 minutes until the shells open. 

4. When cool remove the cockles from their shells. 

5. Rub the butter into the flour and add a pinch of salt. 

6. Separate the egg yolk and beat lightly. Add the egg yolk and water to the flour and beat until the batter is smooth. 

7. Heat the cooking fat in a deep pan and using a spoon dip the cockles one at a time in the batter and drop into the fat.

8. When golden brown and crisp all over, remove from fat. 

9. Serve with brown bread and slices of lemon.
