Try this delicious traditional irish Soda Bread this St. Patrick’s Day and surprise your family with your holiday know how. 4 cups flour 1 1/2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt 2 Tbsp sugar 1 cup shortening 1 cup raisins 2 Tbsp caraway seeds 1/2 cup vinegar 1 cup milk Mix and sift baking soda, salt sugar and flour. Cut in shortening (do not use margarine). Stir in raisins and caraway seeds. Combine vinegar and milk (it is supposed to curdle). Add to flour mixture and blend with fork. Turn into greased dish for about 1 hour at 375 degrees F. Soda bread dates back to the mid 1800s but is still considered a staple of the Irish diet. This type of bread actually gets better after a day or two, when it gets crumblier. It’s great paired with a hearty soup or on its own, heated up and slathered with butter.
