Calcannon is a traditional Irish Halloween dish, complete with all of the classic hearty ingredients you'd come to expect in Irish cooking.
As per the Barmbrack tradition we also look to hide some goodies in the mix - coins typically represent a prosperous financial year ahead - so we tend to make sure there are plenty of coins in the mix... who doesn't want a prosperous year!
