Irish Dinner

Irish Soda Bread
2 cups flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1 t salt
4 T sugar
1 1/2 t caraway seed (I never put this in)
3 T shortening cut into dry ingredients
1 cup buttermilk (about 1 T white vinegar or lemon juice in milk let sit a few mins. I added green food coloring to make mine green!)
2/3 cup raisins (sometimes I put these in, but most of the time I don’t)
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl, cut in the shortening, mix well, add the buttermilk mix well, add the raisins and turn out on floured surface. knead a little and shape into a round loaf, place on an greased (or parchment covered) baking sheet, cut tops 2/3 of the way thru in quarters, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35-40 mins

Good-n-True Irish Stew
-Daren Flynn-
2 # chopped lamb
4 celery stalks
2 # potatoes halved (or cubed)
carrots (about 4 large ones or a handful of baby carrots)
1 # onions roughly chopped (big chunks)
salt, pepper to taste (I also added garlic)
2 T parsley flakes or fresh chopped
1/2 t caraway seed (i never put this in, I don’t like it)
about 4 quarts cold water
If your lamb has a lot of fat, you’re going to want to boil and skim it before adding the veggies. Place ingredients in a stock pot and cook on the stove 1 1/2- 2 hours or put in a crock pot and cook for 6 hours. taste and reseason as needed.
