Braised Red Cabbage

Braised_Red_Cabbage

Serves:  4-6

The easiest way to cut the red cabbage and onions is on a Japanese mandoline but of course you can do it with a sharp knife if you don’t have one or a food processor works well too. This would be delicious as a side order or serve with baked jacket potatoes with a dollop of soured cream and chives for a light supper.

Kerrygold Irish Stove-Top Potatoes with Aged Cheddar

Irish_Stove-Top_Potatoes_with_Kerrygold_Aged_Cheddar_Cheese

Serves:  4

This is a variation on the traditional way of cooking potatoes in a cast-iron frying pan over an open fire. Choose firm-fleshed potatoes for this recipe such as Roosters or Maris Piper as they will keep their shape during cooking and don’t break up. Of course this recipe could also be baked in the oven if you’d prefer. They’re delicious on their own with just a salad or try serving simply with grilled fish or a steak.

St Patrick’s Potatoes

st-patricks-potatoes

 These are very rich so a little go a long way. And the trick to this dish is to cook them very slowly, so that the cream doesn’t curdle.

Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 1kg medium-sized potatoes
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 100g well-flavoured farmhouse cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 300ml milk
  • 300ml double cream

To Cook

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 1, 140ºC (275ºF).  Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin slices. Overlap one-third of the slices over the base of a buttered 2.¼ litre shallow ovenproof dish and sprinkle with half the chopped garlic, one-third of the grated cheese and some salt and pepper. Repeat the layers once more, then finish with a final layer of neatly overlapped potatoes.

Warm the milk and cream together in a pan with a little more seasoning to taste. Pour over the potatoes and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake for approximately 1½ hours until the potatoes are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Cover very loosely with a sheet of foil part-way through cooking after the top has become nicely golden.
