To finish off Irish month, we turned to some classic Irish comfort food. We’ll start off with a simple but elegant side dish, glazed carrots. Carrots have a natural sweetness that this dish unveils and enhances. Our recipe—Glazed Carrots with Whiskey & Ginger—adds some artfully sliced fresh ginger to punch up the flavor and a dash of whiskey for an Irish twist.
The second dish is the quintessential Irish comfort food, Dublin Coddle. The Irish, and especially Dubliners, have been making this stew of potatoes, onions, sausages, and bacon for hundreds of years. Almost every family has their own version of this recipe. We took a fairly traditional recipe and made just a few tweaks to modernize it. Specifically, we par-cook a few of the ingredients separately so that the whole stew doesn’t have to sit on the stove all day. If you try it, though, I think you’ll agree that it still tastes just as good.
Finally, I have a little teaser for a recipe that we’ll be publishing very soon. We didn’t forget about dessert for Irish month. We found a fantastic no-bake dessert that’s both easy to make and delectable. It also fits in perfectly with April’s theme, so stay tuned!
