This soda bread recipe came from my neighbor in Florida. She grew up in Northern Ireland, and came to the United States when she was 22.

IRISH SODA BREAD Preheat oven 400 degrees 4 cups flour (all-purpose)1 tsp sugar 1 tsp baking soda1 1/2 cups raisins 1 tsp salt 2 cups buttermilk

Mix dry ingredient together. Add raisins and mix well. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add buttermilk. Mix a little with a spoon and finish mixing with floured hands. Transfer to a floured surface and knead for a short time. If it's too sticky add a little more flour. Be careful not to work the dough too much. It will make the bread tough. Shape into a round loaf and slice a cross on top of the bread. Bake on cookie sheet for 30-40 minutes in preheated oven. Check for doneness by tapping bottom of the loaf. When done it will sound hollow. Wrap in clean towel and let cool. Slice and enjoy with butter, jelly or both!

CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE 3 1/2 pounds of brisket of corned beef 1 head cabbage, cut in wedges mustard

Cover the brisket with cold water; bring to a boil and then drain off water. Add more cold water to cover the meat. Bring water back to a boil and simmer 25 minutes per pound and then another 25 minutes extra. Remove the corned beef and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Add wedges of cabbage to the same water. Cover and boil 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain, dot wedges with butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with the corned beef.
