Laundry Stain Removal Saturday - Irish Colcannon

By March 16, 2013

Follow me on:

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, this recipe from About.com's British & Irish Food will get you in the Irish spirit. If you happen to splash a wee bit on your shirt, just follow the links to remove the stains. And, if you happen to find some other St. Pat's stains, here's how to remove the green beer, face paint, glow sticks, etc. etc.

Irish Colcannon

  • 1lb 6oz/675g potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 4oz/100g curly kale, chopped (or Spring cabbage if kale not available))
  • 1/2 cup scallions/spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup scallions/spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 stick/100g butter
  • salt and pepper

    Simmer the potatoes in lightly salted water until cooked - when pierced with a sharp knife the potato is soft in the middle. Blanch the curly kale in boiling water for one minute. Drain and reserve. Chop half of the spring onions roughly and the other half finely. Add the roughly chopped scallions/spring onions to the drained kale and pulse in a blender for 10 seconds. Drain the potatoes and add the butter. When the butter has melted, mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy. Add the kale mixture and mix. Finally, add the finely chopped scallions/spring onions and season to taste.
