Happy St. Patrick’s Day! They say everyone is Irish today – even the French, although they would say Irlandais. In America it’s almost true, because about 33.3 million people report Irish ancestry. So let’s all wear the green today, and celebrate all things Irish.
We have a few Irish recipes to inspire you, and an Irish toast: Every food fresh, every drink mature. Erin go bragh!
What’s nice about making it yourself is controlling the ingredients … and of course, the sandwiches you can make afterward. The hardest part is planning a week or two ahead!
It’s obviously too late to start today, so file this recipe for next year, and see how easy it can be to corn your own beef.
This recipe is from Colman Andrews’ excellent tome, The Country Cooking of Ireland, which was published a few years ago and remains the definitive book on the subject. These savory, rustic hand-pies are a staple at Ireland’s oldest festival, Puck Fair. We do like a meat pie.
These easy-to-make scones have crispy edges, a flaky yet tender interior, and are packed with flavor from our Applewood smoked bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and fresh chives. They’re equally delicious split and filled with scrambled eggs for brunch or simply eaten on their own, fresh from the oven. Slather some Kerrygold butter on top. Mmmmm.
