St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, and no, I’m not Irish. (Well, maybe a wee little bit.) I can't offer you a bit of luck or help you find a leprechaun or a pot of gold. Instead, I'll share the TRUE story of St. Patrick. St. Patrick was an amazing influence in Ireland, but his life didn’t start off easy. Kidnapped at 15-years-old, around 400 A.D., Patrick was taken to Ireland as a slave. And there's a lot more to the story than that! As I share St. Patrick's story we'll also make Irish Brown Bread! Irish Brown Bread 1 ¾ Cup all-purpose flour 1 ¾ Cup whole wheat flour (you can use all whole wheat if desired) 3 Tbs toasted wheat bran 3 Tbs toasted wheat germ 2 Tbs old fashioned oats 2 Tbs packed dark brown sugar 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt 2 Tbs chilled butter, cut into pieces 2 cups buttermilk (or 2 cups plain milk with 1 Tbs vinegar added; let sit for 5 min) Preheat oven to 420 F (215 C). Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Add butter, rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles a fine meal. Stir in enough buttermilk to form a soft dough (you may or may not use all 2 cups). Transfer dough to a pan that has been lightly greased and floured. Bake 40 minutes, or until bread is dark brown and the tester comes out of the center clean. Turn bread out of the pan and cool on wire rack. Best served with fresh butter.
