Recipes: Irish Recipes to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day
by: Niall Cinneide
A few drops of green food coloring goes into anything you might want green, even a mug of draft beer. Anything made with Irish cream or Irish whiskey has the Irish spirit, too.
Corned beef brisket, about 4 lbs.
1 juice orange
18-20 whole cloves
1 tsp. whole yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
1/2 tsp. whole coriander
Put corned beef brisket into large pot for cooking. Take cloves and insert them, then sprinkle remaining spices on. Cover brisket with water, bring to boil, then simmer for 3 hours or until tender.
3 lbs. small potatoes, peeled
2 1/2 lbs. carrots, peeled and cut into large pieces
1 medium head cabbage
About 40 minutes before beef is finished, boil a large pot of water and cook potatoes and carrots. Add cabbage about 10 minutes before you're ready to serve as it doesn't need to cook long. Drain vegetables.
Arrange meat and vegetables on a platter and serve with your favorite mustards.
St. Patrick Day Cookie Pops (for the kids to make)
Box of Popsicle sticks
Vanilla or chocolate frosting; or Peanut butter
Various decorations – chocolate chips, icing packs, assorted green candies, green sugar sprinkles, ju ju bees, sprinkles, etc.
Now the kids can get creative! Turn the cookie pop into a green shamrock; apply vanilla icing and draw with green icing pack; make a pot of gold with candies; anything you want!
They make a great treat for the kids to take to school!
Easy Hot Whiskey Punch (for the adults) Serves 1
1 measure of whiskey
2 teaspoons white sugar
2 slices fresh lemon
7 oz. boiling water
Put whiskey, sugar cloves and lemon slices into a strong glass. 2. Pour on the boiling water until the sugar has dissolved. 3. Sip contentedly by a blazing fire.
1/2 cup butter
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Makes about 18 scones.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a large bowl, combine butter and flour until crumbly. Add baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a separate bowl, beat egg and milk. Mix into dry ingredients to make a dough.
