Homemade Elderberry Syrup

1
Use this simple elderberry syrup to create an immune-supporting superfood sipper for cold and flu season. Elderberries offer rich amounts of flavonoids--powerful plant antioxidants shown to help fight inflammation and improve vascular function--in addition to potassium and vitamins A and C. These tiny, yet mighty berries have been used as a natural herbal remedy to help defend against myriad health ailments for over a century. In addition to safeguarding immunity, research suggests that taking the berry at the onset of certain sicknesses may help quell symptoms like coughing and sore throat. To create a soothing, tea-like sipper, mix the elderberry syrup with hot water. Alternatively, pour the elderberry syrup over ice and top off with club soda for an invigorating elixir.

Honey-Garlic Chicken Thighs with Carrots & Broccoli

1
In this easy and healthy dinner recipe, sweet and savory baked honey-garlic chicken thighs come with a side of veggies that cook on the same sheet pan as the chicken. The honey-soy-garlic marinade for the chicken does double duty as an irresistible sauce to drizzle over everything. Lining your baking sheet with foil will protect your pan from the sticky honey-soy-garlic sauce, so cleanup will be a breeze too. If you can't find small carrots, cut medium carrots in half lengthwise.

Rhubarb & Honey Ice Cream

This rich homemade ice cream recipe was inspired by Linnalla Pure Irish Ice Cream in County Clare, Ireland. They add carrageenan made from local seaweed to give the ice cream a more velvety texture. We've simplified the recipe for home, relying on only egg yolks and cream to do the job. Chopped honeycomb pieces add texture and pops of pure honey flavor, but feel free to omit them if you prefer a simpler ice cream. This ice cream would be delicious with rhubarb pie or crumble, or all on its own.

Irish Pork Roast with Roasted Root Vegetables

1
In this easy one-pan dinner, boneless pork loin roast is cooked over a bed of carrots and parsnips for an all-in-one dish that makes an impressive centerpiece for a holiday meal or Sunday dinner. Choose free-range heritage pork if you can--its flavor really shines with no more seasoning than a bit of thyme and a little sea salt. If you'd like, dress up the meal with a traditional Irish apple condiment--Ploughmans chutney or Bramley applesauce, which you can find in specialty stores and online.
