St. Patrick’s Day Feast

7 Irish-flavored foods to celebrate the holiday – and lucky for us, they all include honey

You might think that a leprechaun’s favorite food is a lucky cereal. Not so. That’s just make-believe kiddie fodder for TV. In real life, ask any leprechaun and they will tell you: Their favorite food is honey. And not just any honey. Four out of five leprechauns prefer SUE BEE® honey over regular honeys. 

That pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? It’s a pot of gold, all right – one filled with sweet, golden honey.

But you don’t have to chase rainbows this St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate with SUE BEE® honey or AUNT SUE’S® Raw & Unfiltered Honey. Our Sioux Honey Association Co-op leprechauns, er, beekeepers, have collected all the honey you’ll need to make your St. Paddy’s Day feast a lucky one. Below, you’ll find seven lucky recipes for Irish staples – of course, our versions all include honey. Happy St. Patrick’s Day – and don’t forget to wear green.
