Colcannon is one of my favorite Irish recipes made of potatoes, and cabbage. I make mine with let overs. It is associated with Saint Patrick's Day, but the truth is colcannon is actually traditionally served on Halloween nights. The cook sometimes hides little trinkets or talismans in the mash, each representing fortune, poverty, or perhaps the chance of a future marriage.
