The Patron Saint of
Celebrated for over a thousand years in Ireland and for over two hundred years here in The United States, Saint Patrick’s Day is now celebrated all over the world by people of all backgrounds.
Like all holidays that
involve food, fresh
produce plays a big part in the Saint Patrick’s Day menu. Many people from Ireland migrated to America during the mid 1800s in order to escape starvation. Being mainly very poor upon arrival they carried on their traditional meal with a few changes. Corned beef was inexpensive at the time along with cabbage. This combination could feed a lot of people on a budget. Add in some onions, potatoes and carrots and you have a very hearty and colorful late winter meal.
