5 Ideas for Saint Patrick’s Day Festivities

Every year, on March 17th, many people around the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday primarily started as a feast to honor St. Patrick, who was the patron saint of Ireland. Today, numerous countries all over the world celebrate the holiday with parades, festivals, and delicious meals!

In traditional American Irish culture, most prepare a corned beef and cabbage dinner.  Tanimura & Antle’s Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage is the perfect candidate to use for this festive holiday!  The taste of Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage is milder and sweeter than your average, traditional cabbage.  Smaller in size, Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage is significantly easier for preparation and storage, cutting down time spent in the kitchen and leaving more time to spend with loved ones.  Our Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage is versatile in use, hearty, full of nutrition, and pairs exquisitely with red meats.  What better way to celebrate the holiday?   Serve Tanimura & Antle’s Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage as a side with corned beef or use in a delectable stew with potatoes, meat, and other hearty vegetables…YUM!  Artisan Dew Drop Cabbage also makes a fantastic coleslaw.  Try pairing it with sliced hot corned beef to create an amazing sandwich!
