Hankering for some hash? Perhaps with some corned beef?
Well, this is the time of year for it. Did you know, though, that the dish is decidedly American? The traditional Irish companion to cabbage was probably more like bacon. But Irish Americans adapted.
If you’re looking for some authentic Celtic cooking, check out the St. Paddy’s Day Sunday Supper with Hy-Vee Chef Denise Bushnell. And, if you just can’t get through St. Patrick’s Day without some cabbage, there’s a couple choices for you as well.
