The Ploye

A little history

The buckwheat ploye is an integral part of the Madawaskayan heritage. In the past, ploye had pride of place on the table of large families. According to some, a real ploye does not need to be turned while cooking, it can be eaten with butter, molasses, creton, sugar or maple syrup.

Recette de ploye

  • 1 tasse de farine blanche
  • 2 tasses de farine de sarrasin du Madawaska
  • 2 tasses d’eau froide
  • 1 cuillerée à thé de sel fin

Mélanger le tout et rajouter 2 tasses d’eau bouillante, 2 cuillerées à thé de poudre à pâte et cuire dans un poêlon chaud d’un côté seulement.
