      I made the potatoes from this recipe and matched them up with the Ale Braised Corn Beef with Horseradish Gravy - Swedish style. The paring was excellent. The potatoes were excellent on their own but the the horseradish mustard gravy from the corned beef went perfect with the calcannon. Highly recommend. Even my 81 year old mother, (who does not like to cook anything as complicated as braising meat or putting together two recipes), said after tasting these potatoes that they are so good that we must make this again together - this week - so she knows how to make them.

      My husband said this was the prettiest meal I've ever cooked him! We made it low carb (replaced the potatoes with cauliflower). That may make it not truely Irish with no potatoes but it worked for us. I uploaded my picture. Hopefully it will get added :) This may be our standby meal for St Patrick's Day from now on...
