apple fritters and a dish of fresh fruit

Apple fritters

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 fritters “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.

Middelaldermarkeder 2017

Kalender over middelaldermarkeder 2017 med links til markedernes hjemmesider, opdelt efter landsdel.

Sidste år fandt jeg en rigtig fin hjemmeside med en kalender over hvilke middelaldermarkeder der forgik hvornår, men jeg kan ikke finde den i år. Jeg kan kun finde en side med vikingerelaterede events og markeder: vikingmagasin.dk. I mangel på en oversigt, så har jeg nu fundet alle de markeder som jeg kunne finde. Hvis jeg har overset nogen, så smid en kommentar, jeg vil meget gerne have alle med.

Our first market: Majmarked

This weekend we attended our first ever medieval market as part of the reenactors of the event, rather than as part of the public. We sold our spiced wine (lutendranck & hypocras) in our stall, that was a part of a larger camp, which we shared with a friend and his family. It was a bit crowded but it was fun and we had a great time. We sold most of our wine, so we were very happy about that.

Experimenters in Spiced Wine – Anno 2017

For the last month I have done experiments to source the best (cheap) wine to use for the spiced wines. Keep Reading

Midwinter Feast – a larp event

Midvinterfesten

This weekend I hosted a larp event themed as a medieval (inspired) midwinter feast. Most of the food served was medieval or renaissance inspired. I thought I would gather the recipes together here and show a few pictures.

The event went extremely well both as a larp event and as a dinner. Everyone loved the food, though some of course didn’t like everything. The roleplay was the type we were hoping for, we had no battles or combat at all but rather a lot of character development and political maneuvering. I really couldn’t be happier with how it played out.
