This is a recipe direct from my Irish/Welsh ancestors. Keep in mind, sugar and other ingredients were hard to come by before the early 1900's.
Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not traditional Irish fare. But when the Irish came to America, they found that their beloved bacon was rather dear, while corned beef was a cheaper alternative. This dish is a truly beautiful, all Irish, alternative to the corned beef supper. This uses a whole piece of bacon, rather than slices. You may need to special order this from your butchers.
This is a pudding made from: Seaweed! The seaweed has no flavour, but does make an amazing thickener. Because of this, it is an excellent vegetarian custard. By using Soy Milk, it can also be turned into a brilliant vegan custard. Your guests will never know that they are having seaweed for dessert. Carrageen can be found or ordered in the U.S. through healthfood shops, where it is sometimes called carrageenan.
Dried fruits add some chewy sweetness to this dense quickbread flavored with a couple scoops of caraway seeds.
This Soda Bread has been a favorite in my mother's kitchen for as long as I've been alive. Just mix the ingredients and place in a regular size loaf pan as their is no need to let it rise. It's cakelike texture makes it a wonderful treat right out of the oven or even better in the toaster with butter and jam the next day. I hope you all enjoy it.
As far as organ meat goes, heart is probably some of the most tame you can try. When I first had this, I honestly thought it was an elk roast, or perhaps moose. It was that good! Bear in mind that it is a very low-fat cut, so over cooking will dry it out quickly. This is one I have made a few times for a Sunday roast. When I didn't tell people what it was, they assumed it was just a beef or venison roast!
A traditional Irish comfort food, perfect for the family or just for two. Brush the top with a bit of melted butter for a beautiful, golden brown top.
Very simple for anyone to make and all to enjoy.I am always asked for this recipe and to bring it to all the parties.Add your favorite crackers and it's a hit everytime!!
St. Patty's Day done right: Meat, potatoes, and Ireland's best beer.
A savory new take on a time-tested favorite.
Bring this traditional St. Patrick's Day recipe outside--cook it in Dutch oven on your grill.
Out of bread? Turn your reuben sandwich fixin's into a hearty, creamy topping for baked potatoes. Super for your St. Paddy's Day leftovers, if you have any.
Classic Irish comfort food. This potato and sausage (called "rashers" by the Irish) was a favorite of author Jonathan Swift. It's no Lilliputian meal, though, not with 2 pounds of meat and 2 pounds of potatoes.
This is quick and easy comfort food, a meal in a bowl that is ideal for cold winter evenings. If you can't find an Irish bacon, you can use diced ham instead.
