Spring lamb is regularly used to celebrate festivities in Ireland so I stuck to lamb.
I also stuck to a simple production.
Thin slices of garlic were inserted within the lamb. The meat was rubbed with pepper and cooked in a 350 oven for a couple of hours.
Fascinating stories in the book on cabbage so I tried Colcannon - mashed potatoes and cabbage.
"Did you ever eat colcannon,
When 'twas made with yellow cream
And the Kale and Praties blended
Like a picture in a dream?
I am not sure how Irish corn is given it is a new world crop. But it was the first I've seen them this season and craved them.
Now I can lounge in my new library and enjoy some of my favourite Irish authors.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
