Colcannon (Irish Mashed Potatoes)
This simple Irish dish, dating more than 500 years old, is traditionally associated with the harvest and often served at Samhain. This is authentic irish mashed potatoes.
Do not use regular cabbage. The flavor will be off. You must find savoy cabbage. Google it if you don't know what it looks like. Napa cabbage will do as a substitute.
I find the dish is best prepared as the instructions say, with steamed potatoes. I no longer boil any potatoes for mashed. The flavori is so much better. I actually bought a pot that has a pasta inster and a steamer insert just for this dish. I boil the ham, cabbage and onions while the potatoes steam on top.
