Majmarked 2019 & spiced wine

We came home from the medieval marked event Majmarked in Viborg late last night. We had a wonderful time again this year – it is defiantly our favourite marked of the season. We talked to so many great people. As always we sold mulled wine in the medieval tradition. I promised a few of our costumers that I would re-post the recipes so they are easy to find. It is really important for us that we share and give back to the community – even if it is just in small ways – like knowledge sharing.

The yellow dress – a medieval sign of prostitution?

At the marked this weekend a very sweet woman complimented my new dress and the beautiful mustard yellow colour.

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.

Vinum Dulce – the new name for our mulled wine

This weekend we are talking part in Majmarked in Viborg – a medieval marked event. It is the second year we are there as part of the event. Last year we set up our stand by our friend’s stand, this year we are going with our very own tent and have our own stand. All the groups at the marked have a name, so we had to come up with one for our wine and are now selling our spiced wine under the name: Vinum Dulce – which is literally just sweet wine in latin.

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.
