Buttered Cabbage

Serves 6. Recipe provided by Kerrygold is adapted from “Forgotten Skills of Cooking” by Darina Allen (Kyle Books, 2009). Allen said, “The flavor of this quickly cooked cabbage has been a revelation for many and has converted numerous determined cabbage haters back to Ireland’s national vegetable.”

1 lb. fresh Savoy cabbage

2 tbls. Kerrygold Irish butter (or more if you like)

Salt and freshly ground pepper

A dab of butter

1. Remove the tough outer leaves and divide the cabbage into 4. Cut out the stalks and then cut each section into fine shreds across the grain.

2. Put 2 or 3 tablespoons of water into a wide saucepan with the butter and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, add the cabbage and toss constantly over high heat, then cover for a few minutes. Toss again and add some more salt, freshly ground pepper and a dab of butter. Serve immediately.
