Please recipes from Ireland and Scotland. I'm trying to keep my Celtic roots. If you have any good celtic recipes please share them. I'm also open to different baking techniques and recipes that aren't celtic.

Hello everyone. My name is Shirley Murtagh. I 'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA born and raised here.

I just joined your group and look forward to sharing recipes from the Emerald Isle. Was visiting all through Ireland North and South. I fell in love with Ireland and hope that my husband Pat and I can return there for a visit again before we both get too old to travel.
While in Ireland I purchased several Irish cookbooks and would love to share the recipes.
Cheryl you were asking about a pancake recipe. I will send you the recipe via this discussion grp.

PANCAKES
Makes: 10-12 pancakes

Ingredients:

2 medium eggs beaten
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 tbsp. melted butter

METHOD:

Put the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the beaten eggs
Whisk the eggs and flour until you have a thick paste. Mix the milk and water and slowly whisk into
the egg and flour paste. You should end up with a batter that has the consistency of thin (single) cream
Allow to stand for a little while (recipe does not say for how long).Heat a frying pan until it is quite hot. Wipe the pan with a folded kitchen paper towel dipped in melted butter so that It is evenly greased. Pour about two tablespoons of the batter onto the hot pan, then tilt it rapidly so that the batter spreads evenly over the base. Cook over medium heat until the pancake surface has bubbles and little holes all over. Turn with a Palette knife and cook the other side for slightly less time.
Serve and eat each pancake while it is hot, sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice.


Cooked pancakes will keep for two - three days in the refrigerator and can be reheated.
Pancakes are a popular dish and when served with savoury or a sweet filling are aslso eaten as a light meal or a dessert.

SUGGESTIONS FOR FILLINGS:
Spread 1-2 TBSP of cooked pureed apple, stewed rhubarb, or a berry compote along the centre of each pancake, then roll it up. Pour a few tablespoons of apple-juice into a well-buttered rectangular baking dish. Arrange the pancake rolls in one layer in the dish and reheat in the oven to 350F until hot through.
A savoury filling for pancakes, such as a creamy fish pie filling, should be reheated in a little cream instead of apple juice.

THIS RECIPE COMES FROM THE COOKBOOK ENTITLED "IRISH COOKING" AUTHOR IS BIDDY WHITE LENNON
BOUGHT IN DUBLIN IRELAND www.bonechi.com ISBN 978- 1-84717-024-8

Cheryl I hope this is the pancake recipe you were looking for. Please let me know OK. ENJOY!

Irish soup

I made an Irish soup recipe over 10 years ago and I can't find it anywhere. It had granny smith apples, onions and chicken broth in it for sure and I can't remember how to make it, Does anyone have the recipe?

Irish Cooking?

I'm definitely Irish but I haven't a clue about Irish cooking!
My Dad only ate it, never cooked (he couldn't boil water back then!).
I'm interested in recipes & learning more about my roots, culinary that is!

seeking pancake recipe

My mom's family is from Dingle. My grandmother would never let anyone in her kitchen. All my mom and her sister's talk about are my grandmother's pancakes and how they would beg her to make them. They say that they were so good that they ate them plain. They have never been able to find anything like them since my grandmother's death in 1966. Does anyone have a pancake recipe that may have come from Ireland? I would love to see if I could surprise my aunts with their mom's pancakes. I look forward to hearing some responses. Thank you so much for your time. Nora.
