McEntee’s Tea Brack – Home cooking by Barbara Collins – November 2019

This recipe is no longer fashionable which is a real pity. A good tea brack is a lovely thing with a cuppa. I use McEntee’s loose Leaf Tea to soak the fruit. They won lots of awards at Blas na hEireann this year. By the way, I prefer sultanas to raisins. They plump up better. Be aware that you need to start this the night before to let the fruit soak. Make sure to make more tea for when you want to east some slathered with butter!

The tea currently available online at www.mcenteestea.ie or www.amazon.co.uk and www.ebay.co.uk.
