VCC 375 - Colcannon

Is there anyone out there who have tasted this dish? Colcannon!

This is a traditional Irish recipe kindly contributed by Sophie Kevany to the group cookbook project - You Can Cook' for 'Feed a Hungry Child' campaign.

I will aim to do the taste-testing of this recipe myself over next weekend and will get you an end-result picture later.

Colcannon recipe

3lbs or six large potatoes
Six spring onions/scallions/chives or one onion
Half a pint of milk or 4 oz cream
salt and pepper
1lb boiled green curley kale
3oz butter
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Nutmeg, mace, white pepper or dill as prefered

Method: Put the potatoes on to boil, then cook the kale in lightly salted
water. Do not overcook, drain and keep warm.

Fry an onion in one tablespoon of butter for about five minutes. Add the cream, more butter and nutmeg/dill/white pepper/mace.

When the potatoes are boiled, mash with milk, then add cream/onion mix.

Chop the kale finely, and then in a warm bowel, stir gently into potatoes.

Serve with extra melted butter.
