Today I got a magazine from “Folkeuniversitet” (Community Collage) about the reformation in 1517. In it there was a recipe for pancakes, that looks really lovely. I have not tried it just yet, but it is defiantly on the list of things to try. I thought I would share the recipe with you.
In the renaissance in Denmark fritters of different kinds were all the rage. One of the ones that have transformed and is still a traditional dish in Denmark is the apple fritter “æbleskiver” – not that there is apples in the modern ones. This is a much more traditional apple fritter – with apples inside. They are super tasty and you might want to just eat all of them.
A few years back I learned how to make fresh cheese from buttermilk. It is really quick and easy to make and don’t really require any weird equipment. And it is perfect for larping events. It also has the added benefit of producing whey, which is super handy for baking. Traditionally this cheese is made at home and is called “knapost”.
I have made cock-a-leek twice for events over a campfire. Once it was fantastic and once it turned out watery and really borring. But I think I have figured out why it worked the first time and why it was a fail the second. I do not have a picture because I am really bad at remembering to take pictures of my food at events.
A damper is an Austrian bread type that as far as I know has its origin in the colony era. It is a very quick bread. You just throw the ingredients together and then bake it right away. This recipe is one i modified from a recipe on albanyaustralia.com. I have made it in an oven and over open fire on a skillet at the larp I was at this summer. Both work great. The recipe is quite malleable and can be made both sweet and savory.
From historical sources we know that these viking flatbread were called “leve” which literally means living. Right now I am experimenting with bread for breakfast for the LARP we are going to (Drachenfest).
