Colcannon #1 Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb curly kale or cabbage, cooked
1 lb potatoes, cooked
1 onion, chopped
1 oz dripping per lb. vegetables
1 salt and pepper
1 milk if necessary
1 ring, wrapped in greaseproof paper

Recipe Preparation

Mash the potatoes or pass them through a food mill. Chop the cabbage
or kale and add it to the potatoes. Mix well. Peel and chop the
onion. Melt a little of the dripping in a large, heavy frying pan and
cook the onion in it. Remove and mix with the potato and cabbage.
Season to taste, and stir in a little milk if the mixture is too
stiff. Add the rest of the dripping to the hot pan and, when very
hot, turn the potato and cabbage mixture into the pan and spread it
out. Fry until brown, then cut it roughly and continue frying until
there are lots of crisp brown pieces. Just before serving, slip in
the wrapped ring ~- the trick, as you can see from the rhyme, is to
make sure the ring doesn't turn up too soon -- then the children will
eat it all willingly!

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some reduced carb diet tips:

* Use low carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have gone to the trouble of converting your most popular chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be insane to put in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that instead.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)

The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific evidence published, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to aid in colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every diet.
