"This is a recipe from County Mayo. It is traditional Halloween fare but good anytime! Kale can be substituted for cabbage."
- 1In a large saucepan, boil cabbage until tender; remove and chop or blend well. Set aside and keep warm. Boil potatoes until tender. Remove from heat and drain.
- 2Chop leeks, green parts as well as white, and simmer them in just enough milk to cover, until they are soft.
- 3Season and mash potatoes well. Stir in cooked leeks and milk. Blend in the kale or cabbage and heat until the whole is a pale green fluff. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter. Mix well.
- 1 pound cabbage
- 1 pound potatoes
- 2 leeks
- 1 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pinch ground mace
- 1/2 cup butter
