This Irish soda bread recipe was passed on to me by a dear friend of my mother's who was born and raised in Ireland. It's the best Irish soda bread I have ever had. It is much higher, lighter and softer than most other recipes I have seen. It has an excellent flavor and texture, as well.
This recipe was sent to me by my mum,who thought that her beloved grandchildren might enjoy them! The first time I made them they didn't even get a chance to go cold,as the children and I devoured them.I have since made them to take to our local playgroup end of term party,and once again,children and parents alike loved them.They are so simple and delicious,and a great way to get some extra veggies into your children.Perfect for picnics and lunchbags.I often pack a few in a tub for when we go shopping for child friendly snacks.I should imagine that these would be good served warm with pre dinner drinks or as part of a finger buffet.
Creamy and yummy! Best when served immediately as it continues to thicken. You want it "saucy". Stir in additions such as asparagus, peas, cooked shellfish, ham or mushrooms at the end for a hearty, delicious risotto. From www.usarice.com
This is our absolute favorite way of eating Rutabaga. Had it done this way in a Mennonite Restaurant in St. Jacobs, Ontario and I was hooked. Try it, you won't be disappointed! (Use your food processor for the grating to save time!)
A delicious glaze over boiled carrots. Makes a simple veggie a little special. The carrots can be steamed or microwaved until cooked. The glaze is prepared separately and poured over the cooked carrots to coat. You can either slice your carrots or use whole baby carrots, If you're not a ginger fan then you can use garlic in place of the ginger. If you have an Italian style dish the garlic can be a good substitute for the ginger called for in this recipe
These make a wonderful gift for a dinner party. I came up with the recipe when I wanted to contribute something to an invitation. The dough turns out to be very moist and soft, yet the surface is wonderfully crunchy. Makes about 30 bread sticks.
