Authentic Irish soda bread

I found an interesting site that gives history and recipes for Irish brown bread, soda breads and farls.  It is I think I will give some of them a try.  I will have to use a covered cast iron chicken fryer since I don't have a cast iron dutch oven.  It works great for the No Knead recipe so it should work for this.

I just pulled a loaf of the Brown Soda bread from this site out of the oven - it's great with butter and jam! While of course it's plain, I've always wanted to try the very traditional bread. Well worth it!! Thanks for posting!

It's SODA bread for a reason, so no baking powder allowed.
