"This is a recipe from County Mayo. It is traditional Halloween fare but good anytime! Kale can be substituted for cabbage."
INGREDIENTS:
1 pound cabbage
1 pound potatoes
2 leeks
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch ground mace
1/2 cup butter
DIRECTIONS:
1.In a large saucepan, boil cabbage until tender; remove and chop or blend well. Set aside and keep warm. Boil potatoes until tender. Remove from heat and drain.
2.Chop leeks, green parts as well as white, and simmer them in just enough milk to cover, until they are soft.
3.Season and mash potatoes well. Stir in cooked leeks and milk. Blend in the kale or cabbage and heat until the whole is a pale green fluff. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter. Mix well.

I've never heard of it! Can someone explain what mace is, *I hope it's a type of cooking spice rather than the protective spray*

My husband is the cook in our family and he's not here to explain it to me right now, lol.
