About this recipe: A traditional Irish dish made from mashed potatoes, chopped cabbage and leeks, seasoned with caraway seeds and anise seeds. Leftovers can be revived by adding meat to the dish.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock anise seed, you can purchase them online.
This is yummy and creamy. I devised a healthier version: Use chicken broth and 1 TB of butter instead of the milk and 1/4 cup butter. If you don't have the carayway and anise, some dashes of nutmeg adds a nice touch. Potatoes actually are better after cooled in the fridge (the starch compounds change). And throwing diced ham, or other salty meat if you happen upon some make this a hit with the kiddos. - 27 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Comfort food at it's best! Love the taste of the seeds! I'll be making this again! - 17 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
