It is the time of year to make (and eat)…Irish potatoes!
For those who ask: what is an Irish potato?
Short answer – a candy.
Expanded answer – as they are neither Irish, nor potatoes, the origin of the name is a bit of a mystery.
There are numerous theories floating around the internet as to the provenance of this confection.
One of them places the origin of these in Philadelphia – we find this one to be the most plausible; cream cheese is an important ingredient in these little gems.
They do look like little potatoes when finished.
Come and try some!
