Colcannon Potatoes
Potatoes were introduced to to Europe by 16th century explorers. .This is an Irish dish of boiled potatoes and cabbage or kale mashed together and flavoured with onion, shallots, or leeks and cream or butter. The word 'colcannon' is from the Gaelic cal ceannann' which literally means white-headed cabbage. Starchy potatoes are best for light and fluffy mash.
