Majmarked 2018

Majmarked it such a cozy medieval event. It is framed as a medieval marked – everyone know each other because they all start the season here every year. They are a really welcoming community.

I have now made it several times and are ready to share my recipe. Some of you might have read my tales of ginger beer. The big lesson learned from my first tries was – use plastic bottles – really do!
