  1. https://www.burlapandbarrel.com/collections/recommended-products/products/laurel-bay-leaves This powdered bay packs a punch, very aromatic! Recommended equivalence is 1/8 tsp. to replace 1 leaf, I believe.
  2. I am always fearful of preserving, having not had the chance to watch my Grandmothers do it. They had given it up by the time I was in kitchens with them and my mother never did any canning. With that history of trepidation, I was highly amused by this receipt from The Medieval Cookbook, by Maggie Black. The first word spoke to me 😝
  3. Just a few of mine to add to the mix....
  4. OK, I’ll ask.... what IS it? A harmless cake or a frosted terrine of some sort?
  5. There are reasons to be tempted... the ease, the fun of unpacking the goodies... but I fear that in Minnesota winter, much would be frozen and ruined in the delivery process. In the summer, my CSA provides for my needs, but I never get the winter share and I tire very quickly of squash and roots in excess.
  6. Thanks!! I got a kick out of the titles 😀
  7. I am balking at the price tag... $23 for a Kindle version is more that I am willing to part with.
  8. Great stuff, indeed... I would love to have a look at the “Beetle Bailey” MRE one.
  9. I would love more information on these, since I can’t just reach over and snag a couple... they look so tasty 😋
  10. It is a complex list of ingredients including red currant jelly, ginger snaps, prunes and raisins, among others. I suppose the raisins and prunes account for the dark color? Nice to find unexpected treasures when one is digging through hard to get to books, isn’t it! 🙃
  11. If @heidih can’t easily track hers down, I was able to lay hands on mine and will gladly send you the recipes for carp. I see 3, one for Deviled Carp, one for Fish Dalmatian Style and the last for Carp In Black Sauce.
  12. In going down that rabbit hole, I found two more articles I enjoyed.... https://passtheflamingo.com/2018/01/16/ancient-recipe-snails-with-pepper-and-cumin-roman-ca-5th-century-ce/ https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/dormouse-jars-glirarium-rome Enjoy 🙃
  13. And if you are still a little up in the air about what to serve..... https://blog.britishmuseum.org/how-to-cook-a-medieval-feast/?fbclid=IwAR2FJPV0fwGrPTMJTfoq7TntEiC4YZz9yhwOGPlxDuFs02HdyNujPy2rIUk ... nothing says Christmas like Cabbage Cowder and Creamed Fish.
  14. OK.... this just BEGS to be listed as an article about Heritage Foods though.... https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/felix-gillet-institute?utm_source=Gastro+Obscura+Weekly+E-mail&utm_campaign=68be8781d8-GASTRO_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_12_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_2418498528-68be8781d8-67363049&mc_cid=68be8781d8&mc_eid=40506f7050 And, it is a very good read.
