Irish Corn Recipe

Irish Corn Recipe

brimming with the just-picked flavor that tells you it’s Bird’s Eye Corn.

1 box Bird’s Eye Golden Sweet Corn, partially thawed
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon chopped onion
2 teaspoons flour
2/3 cup light cream or rich milk
1 tablespoon chopped pimento
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper

Place the Bird’s Eye Corn in saucepan (note how perfect each tender kernel is); add butter and onion. Cover and heat until corn is completely thawed. Remove cover and saute about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle flour over corn and blend quickly. Add cream or milk gradually, stirring constantly. Continue cooking over low heat until sauce is thickened-about 5 minutes. Add pimento, parsley, and seasonings. Makes 3 or 4 servings.

2 bay leaves
6 potatoes, cut in half
5 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic

1 medium onion, chopped

Place corned beef in large pot, and cover with water and one can of beer. Add the spice packet. Cover pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Add brown sugar, onion and bay leaves. Simmer 3-1/2 hours.

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
salt and pepper, to taste

Irish Soda Bread

3/4 cup raisins
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 pint sour cream
1 tablespoon caraway seeds

Preheat oven to 350 F. Soak raisins in warm water for 20 minutes to plump them. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a small bowl, beat eggs and stir in sour cream. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir with a wooden spoon or use hands. Stir in the raisins and caraway seeds. Place dough in a greased 9-inch springform pan. Dust the top with flour to prevent hands from sticking, and pat the dough evenly in the pan. With a knife, make a shallow crisscross slash on the top. Bake for 50 minutes.
