[feast friday] Colcannon -an Irish side

If you follow me on IG (Instagram @lifeonthefarm) you know that our cabbage did awesome this year. It's the first time we grew it and now that we have three large heads I needed to figure out what the heck to do with all that cabbage that is ready at the same time!! You can't just make 8 batches of coleslaw. I am planning on freezing some but then also making different dishes. 

Colcannon is an Irish side dish of cabbage and potatoes. It was pretty good and I am looking forward to making it when Ellie gets older to sneak some veggies in. 


1/2 a head of cabbage
1 pound of small red potatoes 
1/2 an onion 
1 Tbs butter
1 cup milk

How To
1. Thinly slice onions and cabbage, set aside. 
2. Scrub potatoes an slice in half. Then steam potatoes in a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water in a covered pan for about 15 minutes. Then set aside but keep warm. 

3. While potatoes are steaming melt butter in a tall sided skillet over medium heat then add onion and let brown slightly. Add in cabbage and let brown slightly (about 8 minutes). 

4. Once cabbage is brownish reduce heat to low and add in milk, salt and pepper and let cabbage soften for about 8 minutes longer. 

5. Combine potatoes and cabbage mixture and then mash with a potato masher to desired consistency and season with S&P to taste.
