I was sorely tempted last night to drive the two and half hours to Heath to eat corned beef. I knew it was a spring fever and tried to content myself with mixing together Kate Kearns’ family recipe for soda bread. I substituted cranberry sauce for most of the raisins. I’m moving and have become obsessed with using up every last item in my kitchen, including cranberries in the crisper from last fall. Somehow the spell of making the soda bread conjured a delicious boiled dinner – cabbage, parsnip and everything- with my neighbors the Donoghues.
