A Little Bit About Irish Soda Bread

Apart from potatoes and Shepherd’s Pie, Irish Soda Bread is probably the most recognizable dish from the Emerald Isle. Irish Soda Bread is baked in droves in the weeks and days leading up to Saint Patrick’s Day.

The bread dates back to the late 1830s, when the first iteration of baking soda was introduced to the U.K. Irish Soda Bread was born of necessity – it makes the most of the basic, inexpensive ingredients available at the time in a politically unstable and economically depressed Ireland. The main ingredients are “soft” wheat flour, baking soda, salt and soured milk. Even families who lived in simple farmhouses without ovens could make this simple, filling bread in iron pots or griddles over open hearths.

This unique cooking method resulted in the signature dense texture, hard crust and slight sourness that soda bread is known for! Loaves are traditionally marked with a cross on the top, to ward off evil spirits and protect the household. Despite its humble origin, Irish Soda Bread is a honored part of Ireland’s culinary and cultural identity. There’s even a Society For the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread!

A Modern Twist, with a CBD Recipe

No matter how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – with whiskey and/or a pint of green Guinness – make sure you soak it all up with a hearty slice of our Fig, Cherry & CBD Hemp Soda Bread! We’ve taken a spin on the traditional Irish Soda Bread recipe, adding in dried fruit and of course, CBD! The dried fruit in our recipe makes our CBD Hemp Soda Bread a particularly good match for some sharp Irish cheese. Serve up our soda bread warm, with some aged Irish cheddar or blue cheese, and a drizzle of Brothers Wild Rosin Honey.*
