    Sommer Clary's Note:

    Colcannon is a very traditional Irish dish which consists of mashed potatoes and cabbage. Traditionally colcannon was served at Halloween; The host would mix a coin, a button, and a ring into the colcannon and whoever found them had the following fortunes: coin meant wealth, button meant spinster or bachelor, and a ring meant marriage in the near future-- kind of fun! I like to serve this with Dublin Lawyer on top on St. Patrick's Day, just to change it up from the typical corned beef and cabbage. I also make this in lieu of mashed potatoes, just because it is so much more interesting. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Scrub and cut the potatoes into quarters, and place in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender.
    2. 2
      Place the cabbage, onion and water in a large pot and turn heat on to high. When the water starts to boil and sizzle (about a minute), cover the pot with a lid and reduce heat to low, and cook for about 8 minutes until they are tender, not mushy.
    3. 3
      Using a potato ricer, press the potato into the pot of cabbage and onion until all of the potato pieces have been pressed (remove the skins between pressings). Add the butter, cream, salt and pepper and gently mix until it is thoroughly combined. Taste to see if any more seasoning is necessary.
    4. 4
      Serve warm. If desired, wrap the "coin, ring, and button" in some paper to tuck under the colcannon (you don't want your guests to choke)!
