September 11 culinary night & medieval applesauce

September 11 was an SCA culinary night. I haven’t been able to attend culinary night in a long time, so was excited to attend again.

The theme of the night was “Harvest Night”.

“pick recipes which highlight the varieties of produce and meat abundant at this time of year from anywhere in the world in period (pre-1650 or so!)”

Since I am not really great at culinary research, and our apple tree is producing really well this fall, I decided to harvest my tree and make some simple recipes easily available online.

Other dishes from a medieval pot-luck

In my last post I mentioned I’d be attending a pot-luck gathering, and was bringing some Viking Age desserts to share. Today I’ll share with you just a few of the other period food items some of the guests brought. I didn’t get photos of everything – things arrived bit by bit, and I wanted to eat too – plus the tables of food got crowded fast! 😉

 


I think one of my favourite dishes was Björn’s 15th Century Herbelade, which contained pork, parsley, sage, hyssop, dates, currants, pine nuts, powdered ginger, eggs, butter, and flour (for the pie shell) though there were so many interesting and delicious things there that night! (And many things I missed out on, because I just didn’t have room in my happy belly!)
