I found another recipe for hypocras when I visited The Old Town in Aarhus this week.
This is one of the stranger dishes I have run into. It is a sweet wine stew with foul meat and nuts. It is very much a medieval dish with all the spices and colouring and artificiality that was so priced. It is also a really tasty dish, but also very sweet dish. It works really well as a side dish for game – like we in modern time use a jam or cranberry sauce with game. The dish can be made with any kind of foul – the meat should be a game-meat as that adds to the flavour.
Powder fort is a strong spice mix used primary in meat dishes. Like all medieval spice mixes this one has a number of different recipes. This is the one I use right now.
