Question of the Day

Why do you cut a cross in your Irish Soda Bread (other than to help it bake more evenly)?  Tell us what you think!

Answer:  Some say it was to ward off evil or to "let the devil out".  Some say it was to make it easy to divide the bread in four pieces. Still others believe that the "X" was a cross symbolizing Christ during the Christian holidays.
