Meanwhile, let's have a closer look at a few delicious St Patrick Day recipes!
Cabbage has always been a prominent vegetable for the Irish. In fact, historians believe that it became a staple around 600-400 B.C.
The Celts brought it to Ireland where the cool climate allowed it to thrive.
Even though the potato became quite popular, during the great potato famine in Ireland cabbage surged back to popularity.
Today, Fried Irish
Cabbage, Cabbage Soup and Corned Beef and Cabbage are very popular St Patrick Day recipes.
The quickest to prepare is fried Irish cabbage with Bacon.
If you’re looking for a historical Irish soup, this one’s for you.
Many believe it dates as far back as Druid times, because it icontains easily attained ingredients from that time.
Adapted from the book, “A Taste of Ireland” by Biddy White Lennon and Georgina Campbell, this is one of our more popular St Patrick Day recipes.
If you’re having a few guests over for drinks or want an appetizer you can prepare ahead for your Irish feast, Irish Cheddar Ale Pub Spread is one of our most popular St Patrick Day recipes.
Serve it with crackers or if you want to be authentic serve it with soda bread. It’s also good with celery or apples.
