Things I have eaten tonight:

1. Homemade corned beef that was a little salty, but then it was beef soaked in brine for ten days what exactly did you expect??
2. Cabbage braised with thyme, mustard, excess juniper berries from the corned beef (surprisingly complementary) and bacon (American bacon because tracking down Irish bacon was not happening, but actually it was quite good if you just cut off the soggy fat bits)
3. No colcannon because we decided we already had too much food for two people (trufax; much as I like colcannon, glad we didn't)
4. Soda bread whose dough was reaaally sticky and which I didn't believe would be done all the way through in time but which kind of stole the show
5. Too much Kerrygold butter No such thing

Just roll me out the door, I'm done.

This, minus the red clover flowers and also choosing to omit the anise or caraway seeds, and using the half and half mix of regular all-purpose white flour and wheat flour, since I didn't have specifically whole wheat pastry flour.

The loaf was pretty small, enough for two people but with little left over. More people might want two loaves from a doubled recipe, perhaps.

I tried it (modified to be dairy free) and it was delicious, thanks!
