Cooking up Some Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

You will notice that many of these St. Patrick’s day recipes feature the shamrock. This is probably the most recognized symbol of the day, along with the color green.

The shamrock was called the “seamroy” by the early Celts. It was considered a sacred plant in ancient Ireland, since it symbolized the rebirth of spring.

By the 17th Century it was recognized as the symbol of emerging Irish Nationalism.  This held fast during the years as the English began to seize Irish land.

Many Irish wear the shamrock as a symbol of pride in their heritage.
