Sugar-free Apple Crumble
#recipe via @YumblesHQ http://bit.ly/1K2Nwl8
- 1 baguette (anything from fresh to 2 days old)
- 6 tablespoons of Dairygold
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 handful chopped parsley
- 25g Parmesan cheese (optional)
First, preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mk 4.
Scoop the Dairygold into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the chopped parsley.
Using a garlic press, squeeze the garlic cloves into the bowl.
If you fancy adding a “secret ingredient” (to be guarded ferociously, no matter how hard anyone begs), add 25g or so of grated Parmesan cheese to the mix.
Stir the ingredients together until they’re well combined and spreadable.
Next, take your bread. Cut slices into it about an inch apart. IMPORTANT: Don’t cut the whole way through!
Spread your garlic Dairygold mixture evenly between each cut in the bread. If you like, spread some on top too.
Wrap the bread in tinfoil and pop it into your preheated oven, cut side up.
Bake for 15 minutes. TIP: If you like your garlic bread extra crunchy, open the tinfoil for the last 5 minutes of baking.

Braised Red Cabbage
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.
- 4 tbsp (2oz) Kerrygold Salted Butter
- 1 small head red cabbage, finely shredded (core discarded)
- 2 red onions, thinly sliced
- 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and grated
- 2 cups (18fl oz) pomegranate or cranberry juice
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 4 tbsp light brown sugar
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp mixed spice
- good pinch of ground cloves
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat a very large heavy-based pan. Add the butter and once it has melted, tip in the red cabbage and onions. Sauté over a medium to high heat for about 10 minutes until just beginning to soften.
Stir the apple into the cabbage mixture and then add the pomegranate or cranberry juice, balsamic vinegar, sugar and spices. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour over a low heat, stirring every 20 minutes until the cabbage is meltingly tender. Transfer to a warmed dish and serve at once.
Rustic Raspberry Tart with Kerrygold Butter Crust
Sweetened fresh raspberries make a wonderful filling, but the star of this dessert is the buttery, flaky crust baked with all-natural Kerrygold Butter. It holds the fruit and creates a delicate tart that begs to be placed next to a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoyed with loved ones after a delicious meal.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold Kerrygold Unsalted Butter, cut in ½-inch chunks
- 1 large egg yolk (reserve white)
- 3 to 5 teaspoons ice water
- 2 cups raspberries
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
To make crust: Heat oven to 425° F. In food processor, whirl together flour and salt. Add butter to processor, pulsing just until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg yolk and water, 1 teaspoon at a time; process just until dough clumps together and begins to form a ball.
Set 2 pieces (each about 12-by-15 inches) plastic wrap on work surface. Lightly dust each with flour. Gather dough and press into a flat disk about 6 inches wide. Set disk in center of 1 piece of wrap. Set remaining plastic wrap, floured-side down on dough. With rolling pin, roll dough evenly into about an 11- to 12-inch round; occasionally turn round over, lift wrinkled plastic wrap, pull smooth and replace; continue rolling as needed.
To fill tart: Peel off top sheet of wrap and invert onto 2 X 15-inch baking sheet lined with cooking parchment. Remove remaining plastic wrap, Distribute berries in center of pastry, leaving about a 2-inch border. In small bowl, mix sugar and cornstarch. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons mixture evenly over fruit. Gently fold edges of pastry over berries, pleating edges to fit; leave an opening of 4 to 6 inches wide in center. Brush pastry with reserved egg white from crust. Sprinkle pastry lightly with remaining sugar mixture.
Bake tart on the bottom rack of the 425° F oven until crust is golden on bottom and juices bubble, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on pan at least 15 minutes. While still warm, with wide spatula loosen tart from pan especially where juices have leaked out. Transfer to serving platter and serve warm or cool. Cut in wedges. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

Kerrygold Irish Stove-Top Potatoes with Aged Cheddar
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.
- 1½lb potatoes
- 2 tbsp (1oz) Kerrygold Salted Butter
- 2 onions, thinly sliced
- 1 cup (4oz) Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, grated
- salt and freshly ground white pepper
Peel the potatoes and slice thinly on a mandoline or with a very sharp knife.
Heat the butter in a heavy-based frying pan that is about 8in (20cm) in diameter and about 2in (5cm) deep. Remove from the heat and cover the bottom with a layer of the potatoes.
Add a layer of onions over the potatoes and another of grated cheese, seasoning generously as you go. Continue these layers, finishing with a layer of potatoes and a sprinkling of cheese.
Cover tightly with tin foil and cook over a very low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour until potatoes on top are just cooked through when pierced with a sharp knife.
Preheat the grill. Uncover the stoved potatoes and place straight under the grill to cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Serve cut into slices, straight from the pan.
St Patrick’s 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.
- 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
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.
