CHRIS DOES THE IRISH JIG FOR ST. PATRICK'S DAY

Chris Henwood, Produce Manager, Is Getting The Co-op Produce Section Ready For Your St. Patrick's Day Celebration Meals!
 
Potatoes and Cabbage are produce that are definitely on the Irish menu. According to Wikipedia: Colcannon (Irish: cal ceannann, meaning "white headed cabbage") is a traditional Irish dish mainly consisting of mashed potatoes with kale or cabbage. 
Chris Doing The Irish Jig
Chris Holds Up Some Potatoes & Cabbage In The Co-op Produce Section
At one time it was a cheap, year-round staple food, though nowadays it is usually eaten in autumn/winter, when kale comes into season. An old Irish Halloween (Ooops, different holiday) tradition is to serve colcannon with a ring and a thimble hidden in the fluffy green-flecked dish. Prizes of small coins such as threepenny or sixpenny bits were also concealed in it. Chris has picked the following recipe for your St. Patrick's Day Meal:  
Colcannon Recipe:
Colcannon
A Pot Of Freshly Made Colcannon
1 lb potatoes
1 lb cabbage
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 sticks butter, melted
1/2 cup milk or cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 tbs vegetable oil
  
Saute the onions in the vegetable oil until onions are translucent, add garlic and saute until slightly brown. Chop the potatoes and cabbage into 1-1.5 inch squares. In two separate large pots boil the potatoes and cabbage until tender. Place the boiled potatoes in a bowl and add milk or cream and mash the potatoes with fork or a potato masher. Once potatoes are mashed stir in cabbage, melted butter, onions and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve as a side dish.
Colcannon is also the name of a song about the dish.
The song "Colcannon", also called "The Skillet Pot", is a traditional Irish song that has been recorded by many artists, including Mary Black. 

"Did you ever eat Colcannon, made from lovely pickled cream?
With the greens and scallions mingled like a picture in a dream.
Did you ever make a hole on top to hold the melting flake
Of the creamy, flavoured butter that your mother used to make?"

The chorus:

"Yes you did, so you did, so did he and so did I.
And the more I think about it sure the nearer I'm to cry.
Oh, wasn't it the happy days when troubles we had not,
And our mothers made Colcannon in the little skillet pot."
