My St. Patrick's Day Dinner 2022

I always enjoy hosting St. Patrick's Day dinner at my Bedford, New York farm.

This year, it was a small intimate gathering for six - complete with my corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and of course, my own version of the traditional Irish soda bread. I brined the 10-pound brisket for five days and then boiled it for three and a half hours on the day of our feast. It was cooked with a variety of seasonal vegetables including potatoes, parsnips, turnips, carrots, broccoli, and celery. I also made a wonderful pea soup. And for dessert, refreshingly delicious grapefruit sections topped with pure grapefruit juice granita. It was an evening of good company and great food.

I hope you saw my photos on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48. Here are some more, enjoy.
