Activities through 10-10-21 Fall Crown

Crown was amazing! …and thanks to the Sisters Interview crew there was a live feed! I’ve posted the link below. I hope they’ll keep doing things like this for those of us who rarely can make it to the events. There are several galleries of pictures on the Kingdom Facebook groups/pages.

Other than that, this week was fairly quiet, with a lot of writing happening and a good Herbs workshop on incense resins and blends. This coming week is potluck and we’re already starting on that.

Project Day is now open for in-person meet-ups as well as in the Virtual Realm! Potluck this month will be Virtual and Real-World! Herbs and Sewing Workshops are on-going. Masks are required.

When will the rest of these open up in person? We’ll probably keep right on with the virtual ones side-by-side with the actual. 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Thursdays, 6am-9pm, starts this week!
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, 1 to 5pm
  • Cheese and Wine happens irregularly, usually announced with little notice on our Facebook group.
  • Next Virtual Potluck – 10/17, 11/21, 12/19, 1/16
  • Winter Feast LVI, Norse Theme. Page here – https://housecapuchin.com/winter-feast/winter-feast-norse-feast-as-lvi-february-2022/ More pages coming!

Here is the direct Portfolio link which has all the past Project Day reports and various projects, original here:  https://housecapuchin.wordpress.com/portfolio/  and new one here:  https://housecapuchin2.wordpress.com/portfolio/ and number three is here: https://housecapuchin3.wordpress.com/portfolio/

Sundials, etc. – Loren and Anja got to the Getty webinar on Mechanical Clocks. It wasn’t worth it. The one expert on Illuminated Manuscripts was pretty good and came up with an interesting thought about time in the Middle Ages…. that it was seen as circular where we would say it was linear, and what did that do to their world view? Fascinating thought.

Orloi – The Prague Astronomical Clock, oldest working monumental clock in the world.

Anja – “Otoh, the ‘expert’ on mechanical clocks…. which is really what we were there for… was…. not expert… I actually knew more on most of it than she did. She also had an annoying habit of saying, “That’s a great question!” (at least 30 times in the talk!) when she was floundering for an answer. Pretty obvious…. She was talking at the “you tube level”, not at any kind of an expert level and some of her answers…. well, for example…. they asked her why the early monumental clocks had mostly astrological info on them and she responded with something along the lines of, “Well, uh, people really liked astrology and educated people studied it.” Not an helpful answer, really. (…and actually *way* off the mark. Yes, I do know….) The *really* bad part of that is that she had the questions well ahead of time. If she had been a student in one of my classes, the best grade she would have gotten was a “D”. ….for “dreadful”.”

Herb Bunch – 

Garden pix – Definitely autumn… garden is going to be slowly dismantled and moved around as the nights get colder. Some pots will go to the shop and some from the shop will go home, and many will get tucked up against the house for protection. We still don’t have the greenhouse tent up. Herbs Workshop is still on incense. We’re working on both ingredients and blends, hoping to make a batch of clearing this week and then next to try incense sticks.

Harvest 10/9

The finished birdies from last week.

Project Day – Anja and Arlys posted early. Anja said, “I got to watch Crown from Round 4 on! Since that time included Sewing Workshop, I spent the time either embroidering on my sampler or trying to untangle the floss from the zipper on my embroidery pouch! Long live Prince Sven and Princess Rauokinn!”, then Arlys posted, “I watched Court. Sent most of it ripping out a mistake and fixing it. Then discovered how rusty my long arm cross stitch is. More rippage….”

Alf and Lulie Heringstad are friends of Anja and Loren. They posted some pictures of their ancient breed Jacob sheep before their 2nd shearing of the year. See the multiple horns on some of them? They have a farm up in Washington where they raise and grow all kinds of heritage breeds and foods. Sunday was shearing day.

A bit after 3 Anja and Claire managed to get a chat doing and Helen Louise chimed in, but didn’t join, since she was working on a Shepherd’s Pie. Anja’s computer started to screw up while she was waiting on a customer and that pretty much ended it a bit after 4pm.

Anja got the lamb thawing. …and then sat and waited for Loren to get back…. Mostly working on the Charles Bridge story.

This recording dates back to 1966 and concerns secular music of the XIVth century. It was one of the first recordings, perhaps the first, to investigate and perform medieval music pieces that have come down to us, fundamental for early music’s knowledge such as the Llivre Vermell de Montserrat and Le Jeu de Robin et Marion. It will be easy for you to notice how the performance choices presented for the first time to the public in this recording have subsequently remained almost unchanged over the years, despite the fact that they belong to a repertoire that has been extensively re-proposed by early music ensembles.

Happy Birthday Loren! You’re One in a Minion!

Maestra Rafaella has left us. 😦

Kendryth Filia Gerald said – Here’s the website of her stuff. It is vast, varied, and far-ranging:

Classes – Tuesday was Anja’s marzipan class for Adiantum A&S. First try on the “Pirate Marzipan”, so-called because Volker Bach got it our of a manuscript from the Caribbean from 1722. …and it’s black. 🙂 Unfortunately the class didn’t get recorded.

Early Week – Mostly embroidery and a bit of plant tending.

Cookery – Another farmer’s market haul this week. Anja spent a good while processing Wednesday evening and that went on even into Saturday. Dilly beans happened on Saturday and the last greens were chopped. We bought some skyr last week, but still haven’t made any. Yes, we’re going to use the commercial stuff as a starter. Planning to do the lamb roll this coming week, and made some scalded milk cheese (acid set) for the Wild Greens recipe below. Still no goosefoot, so it’ll be kohlrabi and leek.

Eat Like a Medieval Saint With Her Recipe for ‘Cookies of Joy’ – St. Hildegard was a mystic, healer, and passionate proponent of spelt and nutmeg. – https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/medieval-cookie-recipe

Rice – From Historical Italian Cooking / Cucina Italiana Storica
A fundamental ingredient in the Middle Ages and Renaissance is rice, generally considered a good food and an excellent medicinal remedy. We also find it in some ancient Roman recipes, but it appears more rarely than in the following periods.
The Byzantine physicians Anthimus (6th century) and Paulus Aegineta (7th century) recommend two different recipes for rice: the first is a puls, prepared with overcooked and mashed rice in the same way as we have seen in the past for the preparation of Cato’s puls Punica; the second, instead, is a ptisane, a medicinal remedy prepared by overcooking and straining a cereal to obtain the juice, meant to be drunk.
This is the recipe by Anthimus.
“Rice is good if well cooked; if rawer, it is harmful. Rice benefits the ones who suffer from dysentery, if well cooked and eaten in this way. Simmer it [the rice] in pure water and discard it when it starts boiling, then cook [the rice] with goat milk. Place the pot on charcoal to cook slowly until the rice dissolves. Eat it hot, not cold, without salt and oil.”
The complete article is available on Patreon, with the translation of Anthimus’ De Observatione Ciborum and several other translations of dietetic and culinary sources, in addition to articles about ancient and medieval food. – https://www.patreon.com/historicalitaliancooking

Da bob….

Sewing – Mostly mundane this week, but a little progress on the sampler and the bob got finished.

Repensando a Idade Média – A DRESS FOR A QUEEN – THE RETURN HOME OF A DENMARCHESE MEDIEVAL RELIST: Among the scarce indumentary that arrived from the Middle Ages, one of the best preserved pieces is undoubtedly a golden brocade (*) dress dated to the th century and may have belonged to Margaret, queen of Norway and then Denmark and Sweden , between 1363 and 1412. According to tradition, this dress would protect women in work from complicated birth. This resulted in his relic veneration, which will certainly help to explain survival until today, although he has already made a lot of changes. This extraordinary piece of clothing was stored in the treasure of Roskilde Cathedral until 1659, when the Swedes took it to Uppsala as the fruit of pillaging along with several other works of art and relics after invading Denmark. The play now returns home to an exhibition at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. Decorated with gold brocade and red silk, probably produced in northern Italy, specifically in the Lucca region, the dress needed approximately eleven meters of fabric to be made and its golden plot contains about 75 % gold, 21 % silver and 4 % copper, small with a thin web of yellow silk, standard in’S ‘. BUT… WHICH MARGARIDA? While there is no solid evidence that it actually belonged to him, it was for centuries identified as the wedding dress worn by Queen Margaret at the age of 10 when she was married to King Haakon VI of Norway in 1363, and more late associated with funeral dress, although it was not closed in the tomb with the remains of the monarch. However, latest studies using carbon-14 and observation of wear and fibre patches have not only confirmed that it was actually used several times in life by someone, but they have allowed the age of textiles to be more accurate for early century XV between 1403 and 1439. Not enough to date the manufacturing season – cutting and decorative patterns seem to point to fashion in the second half of the th century – at least deny the initial chances that it was your wedding dress. Thus, based on this new date, three stronger hypotheses emerge: or it really belonged to Margaret at a more mature age; as it may also have been used by Filipa de Lencastre (not to confuse with the queen of Portugal, wife of D. John I, who was the aunt of Filipa we refer to), married to King Eric of the same kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Finally there is also the hypothesis, formulated by Janet Arnold and Arne Danielsson, that it would belong to another Margaret (1456-1486), daughter of the Danish king Christian I and wife of James III, King of Scotland. KALMAR UNION PATROCINATOR: Margaret (or Margarete) Valdemarsdotter, was the youngest daughter of the royal couple Valdemar IV ′′ Atterdag ′′ of Denmark and Helvig of Schleswig, and the only one of the heirs still alive upon her father’s death. Still in childhood she became queen of Norway in 1363 and was, due to the premature death of her son, regent of Denmark, and later of Sweden, eventually joining the three Scandinavian thrones in dynastic union in the person of her nephew – grandson Eric VII of Pomerania, succession official by the so-called Kalmar Union in 1397. Although she was not officially recognized as monarch of any of these kingdoms in her own right and had diminished power (not even coined in her name, one of the greatest symbols of sovereignty), she was recognized as ′′ lady and lord and guardian of the whole Kingdom of Denmark ′′ and ′′ mighty lady and just lord of Norway “, even using a royal seal with the coat of arms of the three kingdoms from 1391 In fact, his government action – framed in the family context of a male heir’s mother condition – reflected in practice more effective power than it appeared. If in Denmark and Norway their regency was accepted more naturally, in Sweden a request for help from the nobility against King Albert, then dethroned and imprisoned by Margaret’s troops in 1389. His release would come 6 years later, after Alberto delivered Stockholm as compensation, rather than paying a ransom, and after intense negotiations between each other, Margaret and the Hanseatic League, which held the privilege of trade not only in that city but in other southern port urban areas of Sweden. Marking yet another example of a woman of power in the Middle Ages, among others who had been checking since the th century and continued by the late medieval, Margaret eventually tried to overcome, in practice, a certain idea of a royal conception that the mentality of the time reserved for female heirs: the role of the king’s wife and / or mother of the heir to the throne. Mentality that several queens throughout the medieval era had already tried to hit, ruling in their own right and establishing sovereignty equal to any other male figure, as was the case with Teresa in Portugal, Urraca in Castile, Joan II in Naples, Matilda in England or Tamar in Georgia * brocade – weaving technique consisting of two separate layers of thread, connected to plot and urdidura, the pattern of which is composed by alternating layers to the surface. – Pedro Alves.

Making a 15th / 16th Century Chemise | DIY with 4 Pieces of Fabric – Lynne Fairchild – The Italian chemise of the 15th and 16th centuries is also known as a camicia. It can also be referred to as a smock, shift, or undershirt. Historically, the chemise was made out of linen and typically had embroidery on it. ❤️ SUBSCRIBE IF YOU LIKE THIS VIDEO AND WANT MORE – https://www.youtube.com/c/LynneFairchild ❤️ Suggestions for cheaper (and not historically accurate) options are also included in this video, as well as tips for quickly sewing together a chemise. When it comes to sewing, we all start somewhere. This step by step demonstration is to help those who may be new to sewing and/or historical reenactment.

Making a 15th / 16th Century Chemise | DIY with 4 Pieces of Fabric – Lynne Fairchild – The Italian chemise of the 15th and 16th centuries is also known as a camicia. It can also be referred to as a smock, shift, or undershirt. Historically, the chemise was made out of linen and typically had embroidery on it. – Suggestions for cheaper (and not historically accurate) options are also included in this video, as well as tips for quickly sewing together a chemise. – When it comes to sewing, we all start somewhere. This step by step demonstration is to help those who may be new to sewing and/or historical reenactment. Learning how to sew a chemise was one of the first things that I learned how to do after joining the SCA, when I was a teenager.

Sundials, etc. – 

Hedeby Chest lock, based on the Winchester lock – Sven Skildbiter – The chest was found in the harbour of Hedeby in Germany, dropped in clear water, judging from the position of where it was found it was probably dropped over the side from a ship, loaded down with a stone (granite weighing 16.4kg), the lock plate missing, indicating that it had been stolen, broken into, emptied and disposed of into the water of the harbour. Since the lock is missing and a hole remains, there are two hasps on the lid (at different levels on the lid), we can determine that the lock was a double hasp slide lock. The video is how the lock works. The lock I chose to use as a reference is the Winchester Catherdral, Green Cemetary (9thC)(Goodall in Biddle 1990) 1003-5, 1016-17, Figs. 317-18, 3686). Thanks to Morgan for Filming and Editing. Thanks to Driffa, John Russell and Gaz B for lock fittings. Yes I will putting a ‘how to’ in Viking Volume 2. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ipbSaxj_lc

Herb Bunch – Anja was offered some plant starts by a lady on a local list. She had gotten a set of starts done up at home, but put them under a towel as the nights got colder. Those got brought to the shop on Sunday, so they wouldn’t get too cold.

Project Day – We started a day early, although it was mostly talking! Helen Louise and John stopped at the shop for a couple of hours on Saturday, browsed and then Helen and Anja sat down and talked food and feast for a long time. They did get to try the Pirate marzipan!

Helen Louise (from Saturday’s visit) “Thank you for the lovely visit. John enjoyed meeting you all and we had a fantastic day.”

On Sunday Helen Louise dropped in before the day started. Anja was processing pix for the first while.

Helen Louise – “Cleaning house today and harvesting honey from the hives… a lovely pork roast is planned for dinner.”

Later, Loryea stopped by for a couple of hours. We sampled marzipan, talked feast and potluck foods and she went home with Anja’s copy of “An Early Meal”.

Isabeau posted, “A new to me pattern weight. 8 squares. Pretty hefty.”

Bloshka – The Frilled veil or Cruselers (de. Krüseler) – this woman’s headdress, which was fashionable in Europe in the 14th – 15th centuries. It is a white veil (one or several layers of veils) with a ruffled edge (a goffered frill). This type of headgear is called differently: a goffered veil, a frilled veil, or a fluted veil, or the Kruseler (Krüseler).The materials used for the Cruselers were silk, linen or cotton, which were shaped with starch, curling irons, or pressing. The number of veil layers could be different. In the dress code of Speyer (1356), for example, four layers of cloth were allowed, in Frankfurt (1356) 6 layers of ruffles were allowed, while in Ravensburg (1371) up to 19 ruffles were allowed.Such the Cruselers was mainly worn on the territory (modern countries) of Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland. In Germany were very popular “Kruseler-Püppchen” – clay dolls in the fashionable Kruseler veil.

It has often happened that I received requests from our community to look for medieval instrumental music. I found this beautiful record made by Gregorio Paniagua, the eldest of the Paniagua brothers, all engaged since the 1960s in the search for medieval music. In this work, the Atrium Musicae ensemble, founded by Gregorio Paniagua in 1964, has interpreted and created instrumental versions of some melodies by Thibaut de Navarre (XIIIth cent.), also called “the Troubadour”.

Christians and Jews in 13th-century England, with Adrienne Williams Boyarin – Medievalists – One of the things that’s unfortunately true about the Middle Ages is that there was a mistrust of difference, especially when it came to religion. But what caused a lot of anxiety, mistrust, and tension wasn’t always the differences: it was the similarities. This week on The Medieval Podcast, Danièle speaks with Adrienne Williams Boyarin about the ways in which Christians and Jews dealt with similarity and difference in thirteenth-century England.

Project Day – Was pretty quiet. Anja went to Moot for the first hour.

The Canning Jewel

Juliana – “Sending you some photos of a new “wig bubble” project. I got to looking at photos of The Canning Jewel (google it). It is an Elizabethan period pendant made of gold, pearls and jewels. I got to wondering if there was a cheap, easy way to copy such fancy stuff. So here are my pendants. (At least the ones that turned out) Maybe you can share at your work party today.” These are awesome!

Ailantha – Had to be out most of the day today. Sorry I missed this today. Not doing much project work this week as we sort, organize, and purge our craft/sewing stockpile.

Isabeau – Today I’m working on additional pattern weights of different sizes. I did 10 squares. So i thought id try less squares to see what i get. Why not, right? I’m trying 5 square. It’ll be a pyramid.

Helen Louise – Hi all, today I’m making a baby quilt from Paula Arndt beautiful fabrics on spoon flower LillyOak, for a professor at the U of O who just had a baby girl. Hubby is out if town, so now I can get really down to finish this off…

Arlys – PROJECT DAY PROJECT: the pattern for an Assisi medallion.

Anja worked on her sampler during moot and make pickling broth later, to go over the pickled onions. Some of these will probably show up at the feast since we’re within the 6 month block, already.

Music – ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 ℭ𝔬𝔢𝔲𝔯 𝔡𝔢 𝔏𝔦𝔬𝔫 – 𝔐𝔲𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔞 𝔐𝔢𝔡𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔞𝔩𝔢 – Ensemble: Alla Francesca
Album: Richard Cœur De Lion
Video: (read the info) http://www.facebook.com/musicamedievale

The ensemble “Alla Francesca” in this work performs music from the time of Richard the Lionheart, including the famous “Ja Nuns Hons Pris”, written by Riccardo himself during his imprisonment in Dürnstein Castle. In this video I have selected some photos of three very important castles in the life of Richard I of England: the first (which appears from 0:00 to 35:54) is the famous Château-Gaillard, the historic and majestic fortress built by Riccardo between 1196-1198, during the war against the king of France Philippe Auguste; the second castle (from minute 35:54 to 45:00) is that of Dürnstein, where Richard was imprisoned on his return from the third crusade. Finally, from minute 45:00 to 51:14, there is Châlus Chabrol, a fortress that Richard besieged in 1199 and where he died for an arrow shot from the walls while the king supervised the siege. Richard’s bowels are now buried right in the chapel of Châlus Chabrol, his heart is in Rouen while his body rests in the abbey of Fontevrault together with those of his parents, Henri II and Aliénor d’Aquitaine inside a splendid effigy from which his face can be clearly distinguished and that in this video I left in transparency under all the photographs as if he were a king who finally rests after a life of battles, songs, intrigues …
The ensemble “Alla Francesca” has chosen the stupendous abbey of Fontevrault to record this splendid musical work dedicated to Riccardo; I am thrilled to know that the echoes of these melodies, certainly familiar to the king, have resounded among the vaults of Fontevrault once again, 797 years after Riccardo’s death, right next to him.
PS: the miniature that appears at the end I found it instead from a manuscript (circa 13th century) and there is represented King Richard during his imprisonment in Dürnstein and next to him the moment of his death, pierced by an arrow, in Châlus Chabrol.

Dance Vids – Pavane

SAINT PAUL’S ANGLICAN CHURCH – Pavane Belle qui tiens ma vie by Thoinot Arbeau – Consort 8 – Courtly Ayres & Dances – Danced by Fiona Garlick and John Barnard of The Early Dance Consort.

The lovely Pavane “Belle qui tiens ma vie” comes from a French dance treatise Orchésographie, published in Lengres in 1589, and written by Jehan Tabourot, a canon of the church, under the pseudonym “Thoinot Arbeau”. Arbeau provides wonderful insights into the social dances of the mid-to late 16th century, along with instructions using a unique printing system which correlates notes of the dance tunes with their steps. He is credited with the composition of this chanson in four parts, and includes the appropriate drum rhythm to be played throughout. The Pavane was danced “walking with decorum and measured gravity”. It opened grand balls at court, heralded entrances and processions, and was played “when a maiden of good family is taken to Holy Church to be married”.

Approche donc ma belle Come my beauty,
Approche, toi mon bien, come my wellbeing,
Ne me sois plus rebelle Don’t reject me,
Puisque mon cœur est tien. for my heart is yours,
Pour mon mal apaiser, To appease my pain,
Donne-moi un baiser. give me a kiss.

Classes – 

Wacky theories from the Middle Ages – Medievalists – Tight hose caused the Black Death, licking a bear into existence, and the Ordeal of Water. In this episode, Danièle tells us about some of the stranger ideas that came up in the Middle Ages.

Early Week – A soup/stew got made early on in the week, specifically for the potluck. More on that below. Anja was doing more embroidery, then on Wednesday got a block of time to type up some recipes…. …and on Thursday to try to track down more sources. Friday was typing more recipes and on Saturday Loren got some more ingredients.

Cookery – A bunch of recipes from “An Early Meal” have gotten posted. I don’t know why, but not all of them are making it into the menu, so look at this page for the links. https://housecapuchin.com/winter-feast/winter-feast-norse-feast-as-lvi-february-2022/foods-from-the-norse-viking-era/

The stew was a little more “scraped icebox” that usual. The pork roast from last week was the base. It had caraway, onions and mushrooms in it and then a veg mix went in that was a couple kinds of summer squash, canned mushrooms, corn, peas and green beans plus some butter. An onion and a half, a turnip and a bunch of carrots, plus varied greens including beet tops, dandelion, plantain, sorrel and lettuces, plus marjoram, garlic, and someo other things.

On Wednesday a batch of chicken got done so’s to have broth for borscht and chicken for mortar chickens.

Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday were all typing recipes and trying to work out ingredients. There are a lot of ingredients that are going to need further research for sources or substitutes.

Saturday morning was buying some more ingredients.

Pork Stew

Tudor Elizabethan Applesauce, a.k.a. Applemoyse – Lynne Fairchild – Applemoyse, or appelmoise, is a 16th century Tudor / Elizabethan applesauce receipt (recipe). This particular recipe is from 1575 in William How’s book, A Proper New Booke of Cookery.

Ingredients:

  • 4 apples
  • egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp rose water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger

Instructions:

  1. Take the apples and make applesauce. In other words, peel, core, and slice the apples.
  2. Put the apples in a pot with 3/4 cup of water.
  3. Let the water simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
  4. Then, drain any excess water.
  5. Remove the apples from heat.
  6. Mash the apples (or use a food mill).
  7. Stir in the egg yolk quickly (the residual heat of the pan will cook it – beware of scrambled egg).
  8. Then, add in the rose water, sugar, and butter.
  9. Put back on medium heat, stirring regularly, until you have a fluffy, yellowish pudding.
  10. Serve in 4 small bowls.
  11. Sprinkle with cinnamon (Ceylon is preferred) and ginger on top.

Sewing – Just a little embroidery with some mundane sewing.

Sundials, etc. – Adiantum’s A&S was Tuesday evening and about medieval coins.

Making Simple Prehistoric-style Leather ShoesSally Pointer – Drawing broad inspiration from prehistoric shoes, including the current world’s oldest shoe from Areni-1, I’m making a pair or very simple but comfortable leather shoes to wear with my Neolithic outfits.

Herb Bunch – Harvest ahead of the rain. Some of this went into the “thinnings” soup.

We have a couple of people hunting goosefoot or lamb’s quarters for one of the dishes. Apparently, it’s easily wild-crafted (if you know what you’re looking for) and called “bathua” in Indian/Pan-Asian store freezers. Yarrow leaf is also required for another dish. That one probably needs to be wild-crafted.

Project Day – Anja started with the borscht and then the vegetable thinnings stew, both in the tripot, plus the pork stew just needed warmed, ditto. Pix under the recipes, and pork stew by the description above. By 3:40 the whole tripot was going. Next on the agenda was mortar chickens again. Loren was running back and forth, washing vegetables and dishes while Anja was chopping and compounding. Took a break for nibbles and picture processing then got back to it. Finally everything was cooking or ready to cook, but the soups were taking awhile. We finally nuked each of them for 10 minutes and that got them farther down the road. We sat down to eat at 7pm.

Pattern weight. Hand sewn, sand filling

Isabeau – I’m still at work, day 10. Co worker, opposite shift, has covid. Finally getting to work on my adapted pincushion

Ailantha – Idk. I missed the day playing leaky pipe plumber games instead. Next week, I hope!

Arlys – PROJECT DAY: finished embroidering this Assisi ducky slip and put all the parts together for a holiday gift.

Helen Louise – Sounds lovely… not feeling up to doing much today.

Rosamonde Sherwood – Berry pie with berries husband picked. I put a powdered sugar/butter/rosewater & flour crust on top colored w a bit of ube. Should have thickened the berries a bit more……

Potluck Menu

Nibbles (no pix)

  • Bean pickle
  • Cuke pickle
  • black olives
  • green olives
  • fig jam
  • hot pepper jam
  • regular butter
  • Pickled eggs
  • Cubed cheddar
  • garlic butter
  • herb butter
  • bread

Main

  • Pork/Veg stew
  • Borscht
  • Mortar chickens
  • Thinnings soup – Cabbage, small veg, tops, in pork broth.

Afters

  • Strawberries in cream
  • Comfits
  • Marzipan

Anja says – Other than I think I salted the thinnings stew twice… at least… It’s pretty tasty. We’ve been eating off the pork stew during the week, so I knew that was ok. The borscht needs sour cream, I’m afraid, and I forgot to check whether we had any. The mortar chickens worked better this way, with larger chunks, they cooked faster and were quite tender. I used quite a bit of horseradish in them and that, combined with aniseed, salt and saffron sounds like a weird combo, but it works.

…and on Monday discovered a really tasty way to do the leftovers, plain english muffin, buttered and toasted in the oven, then a cold patty set on it and closed up into a sandwich. *Yum*!

Recipes

Tripot – Borscht at the top, pork stew to left, veg thinnings to right.

Simple borscht

  • 1 flat of chicken thighs
  • Water
  • salt
  • 3 beets
  • 1 onion
  • Caraway
  • Powdered horseradish (1 tsp)
  • 1/4 cup barley
  • sour cream

Method

  1. In a large pot put the chicken with water to cover and some salt. Don’t overdo the salt. You can always add. Tough to subtract!
  2. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Check internal temp of chicken. Must be at least 165F.
  3. Drain broth to a large jar (I used an ½ gallon) and fridge.
  4. Put chicken in an airtight container and fridge for up to 5 days.
  5. Peel and chop onion and beets.
  6. Put into a pot (I used a crockpot).
  7. Add caraway to taste. (I used 1 TBSP.)
  8. Degrease chicken broth. Grease should have risen to the top and congealed and can be scraped out with a spoon. Save, if you use schmaltz, otherwise discard grease.
  9. Add enough of chicken broth to cover the vegetables and put on the heat (crock on high).
  10. Put the rest of the chicken broth in a smaller container and reserve for other uses. Save out the “bits” that settled at the bottom of the bottle and add that to the crock.
  11. After two hours, stir well, and check to see whether the veg are cooked. If they are, turn down to warm. Taste and add salt and horseradish.
  12. Take ¾ cup of the broth from the crock and put it into a microwave-safe bowl. Add barley and zap for 5 minutes.
    Test one grain. If crunchy, zap for 5 more. Test. Repeat until soft.
  13. Add to crock and stir.
  14. Shred one chicken thigh, minus bones, fat, gristle and skin
  15. Taste and add caraway, salt, horseradish to taste.
  16. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream.
    Note – If cooking in a crockpot, you can put everything but the barley in at once…. Still cook the barley separately. 
Tripot – Borscht at the top, pork stew to left, veg thinnings to right.

Vegetable Pottage

  • 1 cup pork broth (from roast drippings/stew)
  • 2 cups cole slaw mix (includes carrot)
  • 10 string beans
  • carrot thinnings (handful)
  • tough old (missed!) radishes
  • 6, 1/2 inch rounds of leek from the white end
  • 1 TBSP dried shallots
  • 1tsp salt

Method

  1. Chop everything and put in crockpot.
  2. Cook on high for 4 hours.
  3. Stir
  4. Taste
  5. Add seasonings, if necessary.

Note – This was really pretty until the pork broth was stirred into it and made it very dark. 

Mortar Chickens, Meister Hans 1460 cookbook

  • 2 Chicken thighs, cooked and cooled,
  • 1 egg
  • medium pinch Saffron
  • 1 tsp Horseradish or pepper
  • 1 tsp Aniseed
  • Fat or oil (used bacon fat)

Method

  1. Muddle the egg.
  2. Sprinkle ground saffron onto egg and let sit for a few (best overnight!) for the saffron to “color”.
  3. Mix egg and spices.
  4. Skin and bone the chicken , then chop it well. Add egg mix and process until well mixed.
  5. Divide into 6 sections for patties or 12-15 for “nuggets”.
  6. Scoop out with a large spoon to get a consistent size
  7. Heat ½ inch oil/grease.
  8. Drop patties/nuggets onto oil. This was done at “5” on my burner. The oil should foam around the patties.
  9. Use something like a potato masher to flatten the patties once they’re in the pan.
  10. Loosen from pan within a minute. At about 3 minutes it will be browning on the bottom and can be carefully flipped to the other side. These are *very* tender and will tend to fall apart if you handle them like a burger!
  11. Fry until done (check inside temp with thermometer…. 165F-180)
  12. Serve each on ½ a roll and garnish with spring onion rings.

Recipe #62 Von mörser hüner die mach also – Of mortar chickens, make them thus

Take a roasted chicken, dismember it small and take the sheer meat of it. And take a thin batter of eggs and of pepper, anise, pepper and saffron and pound it all together in a mortar. Fry it in a little fat, those are mortar chickens.

Miscellaneous pix

The West Yorkshire Hoard, which was first unearthed on 14 September 2008 in the Leeds area.
This was an unusual collection of seven items: four gold rings, a fragment of gold brooch, a bit of gold ingot and (the odd one out) a lead spindle whorl.
And not a single coin in sight to help date it!
The chunky-looking gold ring on the right is considered 10th-century in style; the earliest pieces are 300 years older than that, which means that the person who collected – or inherited – this stash of treasure had the rights to some very valuable property.
The burial pit itself showed signs of repeated disturbance – that’s led to the theory that whoever buried the hoard, in the 10th century or later, kept coming back whenever they needed the portable wealth that the gold and gemstones offered them.
If that’s the case, the ’hoard’ represents the last few bits that never did get ’cashed in’.
Why the owner failed to return is a mystery – but the political instability of northern England in the 10th and 11th-centuries probably offers the best explanation. The so-called Northumbrian Priests Law of c.1023 forbids travel in and out of York on holy days including Sunday, but makes an exception ’in cases of hostility’.
A thousand years later, their loss is our gain.

Picatrix: A Medieval Treatise on Astral Magic – Medievalists

Did ANNE BOLEYN have a PSEUDO PREGNANCY in 1534? Causes of pseudo pregnancies. Six wives documentary – History Calling – The second wife of Henry VIII is generally assumed to have had three pregnancies; one which resulted in the birth of Elizabeth I in 1533, one which ended in an unrecorded miscarriage or stillbirth in the summer of 1534 and one which ended in a miscarried son in January 1536. These are also the pregnancies frequently shown in films, TV shows and documentaries about Henry’s doomed Queen, such as The Tudors and Wolf Hall. There is debate however, as to whether Anne Boleyn’s second pregnancy was real, or if she mistakenly thought she was expecting again; a condition known as a pseudo pregnancy (or pseudocyesis). Indeed her step-daughter, Queen Mary I, would later experience one of the most famous cases of pseudo pregnancy in history, due to the extreme psychological stress she felt around the need to produce an heir. In Anne’s case, the Imperial Ambassador, Eustace Chapuys, reported that by September 1534, Henry was beginning ‘to entertain doubts as to his mistress’ reported pregnancy’ and this comment has fueled speculation that Mary was not the only Tudor Queen affected by pseudocyesis. In this six wives documentary from History Calling, we’ll look at the evidence for Anne’s middle pregnancy, the causes of pseudo pregnancies and how likely it is that she suffered from this phenomena. In the course of the video, I’ll also reveal how many pregnancies Anne Boleyn had and discuss the theory that she was pregnant in the summer of 1535.

Recipes

Confraria Gastronômica do Barão de GourmandiseNostradamus cherry jelly – (translation by google)

Yesterday I made a post about Nostradamus’s recipe book and magic potions (if you missed it, see via the link https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=259111906215202&id=100063491832953). In it I quoted as an example the famous cherry jelly that the prophet of predictions recommended, and some people sent a message asking for more details …. So today the post is all about this.

Before he became famous for the prophecies, Nostradamus had already written the Traité des fardemens et confitures, which can be translated as a manual of cosmetics and canning. In this work he details the preparation of magic potions (many creams and fruit preserves that he ensures to satisfy the taste and have therapeutic properties.

One of them in particular receives a lot of praise from many experts, who treat it like the ′′ perfect ′′ jelly, which in this case is made with cherries.

The sweet is described in Nostradamus’s reception as ′′ excellent flavor, clear transparency and red glitter, like that of a thin ruby, with cherries kept preserved for a long time “. He adds that the jelly,” of excellence supreme can be offered to a king.”

Ingredients:

  • half a kilo of sugar
  • 2 kilos of cherries with stalk

Preparo:separe the most mature and prettiest cherries you can find and boot the stalk. Place the sugar in a metal pan and over it smash the cherries without stalk with your hands clean the pot to fire (high) and keep it in the boil until the volume is reduced by half, constantly messing with a clean spatula. stretch a clean cloth over an empty container and pour the contents of the boil. twist the cloth over the container to extract all the liquid from the mixture, make sure that only the lumps and cherries remain in the cloth. return the filtered liquid to the fire (low) and monitor the baking so that it doesn’t dry too much, mess with the spatula or with a silver spoon be careful not to boil too much so it doesn’t dry and burn better that the jelly gets a little ′′ raw ′′ ′′ than over-boiled as sugar tends to resect the mixture a bit during storage to know if the mixture reached the right point drop a shred on a cold surface like marble and observe the consistency. the drop must remain firm without moving or dripping to the sides and must show a red like that of a perfect Bordeaux red wine when you’re sure to have reached the point, pour the mixture into the compote vasilhams. When the mixture cools you’ll see that you made a perfect cherry jam, impossible to overcome in taste, excellence and beauty.

I add as a tip to Nostradamus’s comments for you to check out if it was successful: ′′ If you let the contents of the bottle be illuminated by the sun’s rays, you will see the beauty of a ruby. Jelly should be offered to a prince when he is annoyed with the heat so he can appreciate his delights and purity.”

Observation. The recipe does not indicate to include more cherries inside the jellies pot, but if you like them and have them, put some without lumps when the jelly is already in the pot, before closing.

2021 is celebrating Dante’s 700th year anniversary and many events dedicated to the poet are taking place here in Italy. Among the many audio publications dedicated to Dante, I chose this one by Martin Best, an English musician active in the field of early music since the 60s. In this work, Best and his ensemble have combined pieces of some troubadours mentioned in Dante’s works with some Italian Istampitte and Salterelli, contemporary with the poet.
For the images of the video I chose the version of the Divine Comedy of the Ms-8530 because images inside are simply beautiful, moreover the manuscript was made in the fourteenth century, the century in which Dante lived.

1461: The Year That Shocked Medieval England | Medieval Dead | Chronicle – Chronicle – Medieval History Documentaries
On Palm Sunday 1461, the bloodiest battle in all of English history took place in a small Yorkshire town. The Battle of Towton saw over 28,000 people die during one of the largest snowstorms in British history. If these fallen soldiers could speak, what would they tell us? They would recount extraordinary tales of pagan rituals, plague, and the cruel land in which ordinary folk struggled just to stay alive. Now, centuries after they were buried, the medieval dead are about to rise from their graves. This series reveals true stories of medieval life by examining the skeletal remains that lie buried below the earth’s surface.

The EXHUMATION Of Anne Boleyn – TheUntoldPast – Anne Boleyn was Henry VIII’s ill-fated second Queen/wife who met her end inside the Tower of London on a scaffold facing a swordsman. Anne Boleyn’s execution is one of the most significant and shocking events in English History, with her downfall being expertly manipulated by Thomas Cromwell. Henry VIII had already had his eye set on Jane Seymour, and needed Anne out of the picture, so Cromwell imprisoned her and had Anne placed on trial from treason and other charges.
She was brutally executed on Tower Green in front of a small crowd, and then she was buried inside the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula inside of the Tower’s walls. During the Victorian period, there was a significant amount of restoration carried out on the chapel, and they then exhumed the body of Anne Boleyn and doctors recorded what it was like. They noted it had a very small neck, and also she had died from the beheading during the Tudor period. Anne’s grave had also been disturbed by another burial.
She was then re-laid to rest inside of the Chapel, along with Henry VIII’s fifth wife Catherine of Aragon and a number of other Tudor nobles who were executed inside the Tower of London.
So join us today as we look at, ‘The Exhumation of Anne Boleyn.’

House Capuchin Shield2

For a holiday weekend, it was pretty quiet. I kept thinking how sad I was that Taran’s elevation wasn’t happening. No Shrewsbury. No coronet except for people who are required…. no invites to feasts and such. <sigh>

So we’re doing things on our own. We had a good project day and a good long video chat. Various projects got worked on during the week, although we didn’t have Herbs Workshop again. <sigh>

Project Day is now open for in-person meet-ups as well as in the Virtual Realm! Potluck this month will be Virtual and Real-World! Herbs and Sewing are ongoing, but not well-attended.

When will the rest of these open up in person? We’ll probably keep right on with the virtual ones side-by-side with the actual. 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Thursdays, 6am-9pm, starts this week!
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, 1 to 5pm
  • Cheese and Wine happens irregularly, usually announced with little notice on our Facebook group.
  • Next Virtual Potluck – 9/19, 10/17, 11/21, 12/19, 1/16
  • Winter Feast LVI, Norse Theme. Page here – https://housecapuchin.com/winter-feast/winter-feast-norse-feast-as-lvi-february-2022/ More pages coming!

Dance Vids – History & Dance Steps of Il Torneo Amoroso – Lynne Fairchild – Il Torneo Amoroso was a late 16th century / early 17th century dance published in Cesare Negri’s dance treatise called Le Gratie d’Amore. Il Torneo Amoroso translates to English as the Love Tournament. This particular dance style was known as combat dance, which was popular during the Elizabethan age. This dance is danced by a couple (two people: one in the lord’s position and one in the lady’s position). It has courting, an argument, and the make-up after the argument.
Also, learn some history about this dance master, as well as different interpretations (and Italian to English translation) of Il Torneo Amoroso (the 7th dance in Negri’s treatise). Plus, instructions of how to do the various dance steps in this dance.

Hurlbats: Late Medieval Throwing Axes – Lynne Fairchild –
The hurlbat, also known as a Wurfbeil, was a throwing axe used in the late Medieval period. The throwing cross was also known as a Wurfkreuz. The hurlbat was developed in the Germanies, in the late 14th century as a disposable cavalry weapon. However, over the next two centuries, the hurlbat slowly lost favor to the simpler “Wurfkreuz”, or throwing cross. The hurlbat was a throwing axe made entirely of metal, fitted with blades or spikes such that it should cut or pierce a target in any orientation when thrown. Historic examples of hurlbats that still exist range from the 13th to the 17th century. Hurlbats and Wurfkreuzen are wonderful tools for teaching thrown weapons to beginners in the SCA.

Early Week – Not much going on except for watering and tending plants. Tuesday evening Anja started some embroidery and did a lot of mundane sewing over the next two days.

Pork roast with onions, mushrooms and caraway

Cookery – Since we were having a mini-potluck on Sunday, Anja started planning. She was figuring on a nibbles tray, then a pork roast with casik and a mixed veg bowl. Potted cheese was on the agenda, too, so the supplies were bought on Friday (we had the shallots) …and things went sideways on Saturday and then the expected company couldn’t come, after all… The pork roast got cooked, anyway.

The Tudor Travel Guide – posted on Facebook on 9/5/21

Today is the anniversary of the death of Katherine Parr. In 1548, at the age of 36, Katherine died at Sudeley Castle Having been delivered of a girl, who the couple named, Mary, on 31 August the dowager queen soon showed the deadly signs of the dreaded puerperal fever.

Katherine’s body was wrapped in cere and waxed cloth, and put into a lead envelope for burial. The only English queen to be buried on private land, she lies at peace within the heart of the chapel at Sudeley Castle, in Gloucestershire. Sadly, her repose has not always been so peaceful. After a lifetime of drama and the desecration of her body after death, Katherine now rests ‘neath starry skies’.

Her presence, however, is still felt at Sudeley. Along with the hauntingly beautiful remains of Richard III’s original state apartments, the chapel, which was rebuilt during the nineteenth century, contains a beautiful tomb that commemorates Katherine’s burial at Sudeley. What is left of her remains (which is not much by all accounts!) are interred in the family vault beneath the floor of the chapel.

To find out more about the life and death of this remarkable woman, head over to a blog I wrote a few years ago. It is one of my most popular blogs, probably on account of the gruesome story of Katherine’s afterlife! 😱 – https://thetudortravelguide.com/2018/11/24/sudeley-castle-and-the-remarkable-life-and-death-of-katherine-parr/

Music – 𝔊𝔲𝔦𝔩𝔩𝔞𝔲𝔪𝔢 𝔡𝔢 𝔐𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔲𝔱 – Motets, Ballades, Virelais, Rondeaux – 𝔐𝔲𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔞 𝔐𝔢𝔡𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔞𝔩𝔢
Ensemble: The Collegium Musicum Of The University Of Illinois
Album: Motets, Ballades, Virelais, Rondeaux
Video: Ms. Français 1586 (XIVth cent.)
http://www.facebook.com/musicamedievale

This album was recorded in 1956 and it’s probably one of the earliest audio recordings of medieval music material.
It is part of the vast discography of Thomas Binkley (1932-1995): musician, musicologist and professor of the Schola Cantorum Basilensis, playing the lute in this record. The songs of this old recording are extremely fascinating probably thanks to the style of the singers and the good taste in production, really far from the modern, pompous and glossy “plastic” productions.
The songs are all by Guillaume de Machaut, who wrote a lot of music of all genres. We have: Rondeau, a vocal musical form that developed originally as monophonic music (in the 13th century) and then as polyphonic music (in the 14th century); the Motet, a vocal musical composition of highly diverse form and style. The late 13th century theorist Johannes de Grocheo believed that the motet was “not to be celebrated in the presence of common people, because they do not notice its subtlety, nor are they delighted in hearing it, but in the presence of the educated and of those who are seeking out subtleties in the arts”; the Ballade, “dancing songs” widely used in popular poetry and song; Lai, a narrative lyric poem written in octosyllabic couplets that often deals with tales of adventure and romance and Virelai, a form of song, usually with three stanzas and a refrain that is stated before of the first verse and again after each.
I advise anyone wishing to deepen the fixed forms of medieval music, only sketched out above, to do a little research on the internet.

1 Motet “Pour Quoy Me Bat Mes Maris? Lasse! Comment oublieray”
2 Ballade “Ma Cherie Dame”
3 Ballade “Tres Douce Dame Que J’Aour”

He did not mention where he found it or who it is by, so if you have any info on that I would like to update the post with proper credits.
