The following is from a very VERY old site I used to have, Celtic Voice, not up anymore. It shows 2 of my recipes for the alcoholic beverage known as mead, or honey wine. I am sure those in the SCA will remember some of this.

TDF Honey Ketchup

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150This ketchup is the very best that I can ever remember tasting. It is clean, light and yet bold as well. It has a smooth flavor that will make you never want to have another type of ketchup ever. This is what the condiment tomato sauce should taste like and is better than any store bought I can remember. Once you try this flavorful to die for ketchup you won’t want another kind ever.

Ingredients for TDF Honey Ketchup

6 oz. tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rice vinegar*
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. finely minced sweet onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. powdered clove
1/8 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. basil (can be minced up with the onion)

*I use rice vinegar because white vinegar is made from corn.

Sniglet of the Day: November 22

Sniglet Of The DayBuffle – n. The Butter trapped in a squaffle of a waffle

Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, and we know those of you whom are cooking the feast will most likely be making those sweet crispy treats for breakfast that day. Everyone loves waffles, especially with real butter. Mo’ butter… mo’ better! Every one of those little squaffles will be filled with buffles, that is, until you and your clan drowns them in maple syrup or honey. No matter, since there will most likely be enough batter to make even more waffles to scarf down on while the kids watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, or whatever parade happens to be more popular this year. These days, waffles can sometimes be as much of a feast as the big turkey dinner you will be cooking or devouring around two o’clock later that day, before you settle in for an evening of football or five card draw. So get the kids all sugared up on Thanksgiving morning, then boot them out the door to go play hard and work it all off. They are not the ones whom you will have to be shooing from the kitchen. How you keep the other relatives from taste-testing and adding their unwanted advice is up to you.
