Families with or without an Irish background love to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Last year a survey from the NRF found that 84.2% of people will celebrate by wearing green, 23.3% will decorate their home or office and 34.6% will make a special dinner.
An easy way to celebrate the holiday whether here in New York or elsewhere in the nation is with Krusteaz’s new Artisan Beer Bread Mix. The easy mix requires no kneading or rising. It’s as simple as adding a 12 ounce bottle of beer, three tablespoons of melted butter and then baking it in the oven. In less than an hour delicious home baked bread is ready to eat. The outside of the bread comes out firm and crusty while the inside is soft and tender. There is no lingering taste of beer, just fresh oven-baked bread.
To add a touch of green to the kitchen, Ball has launched its Spring Green Heritage Collection Jars. The jars are available in both Regular Mouth pint and Wide Mouth quart. They celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the “Perfection” jar, the next iteration of the Ball brothers “Perfect Mason” and are tinted a beautiful period correct spring green color. The jars are great for storing the Artisan Beer Bread Mix, flour, sugar, jams, pickled vegetables or even just as a unique drinking glass for beer lovers.
