So, after the chores I headed out to the high tunnel, bowl in hand, to harvest some greens. It is our first winter with the high tunnel and I had expected the growing to be done by the end of November, but with the unusually temperate weather this winter we are still blessed with lots of delicious greens.
Next, cue the colcannon-making music:
Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish made with potatoes, greens (often cabbage, but I prefer deep green kale, chard or spinach) and scallions. We boil the potatoes, then add the uncooked, chopped kale and scallions. The hot potatoes wilt and lightly steam the greens.
