Tomato Chutney

From: Today

This is a very popular dish which goes very well with pilau rice. I use this as a bread or wrap spread for cheese and ham sandwiches which gives that extra flavour and variation to the ordinary sandwich! You can even use this dish as a sauce for your pasta or spaghetti.

Smoky BBQ Chicken Fajitas

Blackberry and Apple Crumble, Hazelnut and Vanilla Topping

Griddled Lamb Chops with Courgettes and Lemon

Gur Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This can be made with stale cake rather than bread if preferred, in which case omit the dried fruit.

Nettle Soup

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This soup is a great favourite in the spring when the nettles are young. Nettles are full of minerals and vitamins which purify the blood. In the country, nettle tea was also drunk, made by pouring boiling water over chopped nettles, boiling for about 15 minutes, then straining and adding milk and sugar. This was often given to children who had measles. It is said to have been a favourite of St Columcille. Nettle soup is still served in some hotels in Ireland; this recipe is from Declan Ryan, who was chef-proprietor of the much-starred Arbutus Lodge, Cork - sadly no longer in existence. Use gloves and a scissors when cutting the nettles. Do not gather them from sprayed verges or after the end of May as they will be too tough.
