What a perfect spread for a St. Patrick’s Day party, because it’s excellent on crackers and goes perfectly with the beer. Actually, the beer is in it. I confess that I have to do some soul-searching before serving this spread, because it’s so hard to stop eating. If you want to enjoy it with a little less guilt, serve it for lunch on a whole-grain bread, along with a hearty soup like French Market Soup (recipe coming soon).

To prepare as gifts I packaged my spread in Weck canning jars and decorated them with circle labels and twine.
