We have stew covered, how about some recipes...

for other typical Irish dishes. By the way

the Irish stew recipes were outstanding,

particularly the hint to use lamb shanks.

Thanks in advance and also in retrospect.

PS When I go to a country, I eat their

foods. How can you spice up colcannon?

Heresy! Spice up colcannon!! Why would you want to spice it up!!! (OK I'll quit with the exclamation marks)

Flavoury (and floury if thats what you like) potatoes, tender kale, a splash of hot milk to mix and a big lump of butter. Salt and a good grind of pepper. Perfection. With really good Irish sausages, Superquinn for preference. And some nice caramelly fried onions. Yum.

Of course I forgot to say that the potatoes should be boiled in their skins till just done, then the water poured off and the pan returned to the heat (works best on a range) till the potatoes have dried and maybe just scorched a little. Then peel and mash.

This is a little dangerous and really not very good for your expensive, non-stick pans. The potatoes taste amazing though.

What do you do with all the ingredients, just mash them together. Do you form them into patties?

I didn't know there were good Irish sausages.

Besides Superquinn what are some others?

You just stir all the colcannon ingredients (cooked) together and serve like mashed potato. Comfort food!

I am sure there are lots of favourite sausages, but I personally like the Tesco Finest Irish Sausages, which considering they are not an Irish company is a bit controvertial. And their Finest brand white pudding is gorgeous. There are lots of smaller butchers who do their own sausages, you just have to hunt them out locally.

Do the Irish make scones using dried peaches or

apricots?

MFrank,

I've tried top duplicate brown bread for years. I've come to the conclusion our flours are different. Not as soft or ground differently. A pretty good replication is the Irish Soda bread mix you can get at Meijers and a few other places. Made by Uncle Red's or similar. You can find them in the organic section or where specialty flours or cereals are shelved. It's dense and not sweet.
