Anja and Loren had a rough week, and it’s gotten worse, which is why this is so late. (Boosters and mundanity….) Also, there was a problem with the original report page and it had to be re-done.

How To Celebrate Christmas…Medieval Style! | Tudor Monastery Farm Christmas | Chronicle – Chronicle – Medieval History Documentaries – Although Christmas was celebrated very differently in Tudor times, if anything the celebrations were even bigger. Historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Tom Pinfold and Peter Ginn turn the clock back 500 years to rediscover how the farms of Tudor England celebrated the 12 days of Christmas. While Peter and Tom decorate the farmhouse with holly and ivy, Ruth prepares grand banquets for the farm workers. The Christmas Day feast was particularly special and featured a pig’s head rather than a turkey as its centrepiece.

Christmas “Cheesecake” Treats From The 1700’s – Townsends

Early Week – A lot mundane stuff was going on, mostly holiday and some things for Anja and Loren’s shop. They *did* make a batch of leather thimbles and start another. Some of those will go for largesse, too, and Anja worked on embroidery.

Cookery – Another batch of the peas in a bag happened for the potluck, along with cod and glazed roots, plus a test filling for the “ship”. Anja also set up a bunch of pickles and set of veg to be frozen and ready to go. (more on all that below in “potluck”.


2.16 – Los hay a centenares que venden chocos por calamares – Fogones en la Historia – Receta de Cazuela de Calamares, sacada del tratado “Arte de Cozina” de Francisco Martinez Montiño. 2.16 – There are hundreds who sell cuttlefish for squid – Stoves in History – Cazuela de Calamares Recipe, taken from the treatise “Arte de Cozina” by Francisco Martinez Montiño.

Sewing – More embroidery during the week and more findings for the bookmarks.

Weave Along with Elewys, Ep. 23: Largesse on a Large Loom – Elewys of Finchingefeld – Making yards and yards of tablet weaving, made on a Monster Loom as a gift for Largesse.

Ideas on Where to Find & Examples of Recreated Historical Blackwork Embroidery Patterns – Lynne Fairchild – Here are ideas on where to find and recreate historical blackwork embroidery patterns, as well as providing some historical patterns that I have recreated myself.
Blackwork embroidery is a reversible embroidery stitch that is known by many different names and can be geometric in design. These various names include: Holbein stitch, Spanish stitch, double running stitch, kasuti stitch, and more!
In Tudor England during the 16th century, it had been referred to as Spanish stitch, until King Henry VIII divorced his first wife, Catherine of Aragon (who was Spanish). After that, the name blackwork was adopted for use to describe this particular type of embroidery.

Sundials, etc. – Loren’s been pecking away at the trims for the bookmarks.

Herb Bunch – We made ball sachets in the workshop. Garden tending was adding dirt to some roots that were backing out of the potting soil as it settles in the rain. No pix….too dark!

Project Day – Arlys apparently couldn’t find the event. She’s been having trouble getting House photos on the group to come up, too…. She said she did find her thread that she’d been hunting for.

Pretty much all Anja was doing was cooking. Loren worked on bookmark findings.

Feast Planning – Three test dishes this week. First, the revamped recipe for the peas, which worked just fine in a salted chicken broth. Two, the berry sauce for red meat, which worked well on the “longship fill” which was hamburger. Three was the cod with glazed roots. The veg were awesome as was the mustard sauce. The cod was disgusting. Gotta try again on that one or go for the poached halibut.

Potluck – Cooking didn’t start until way later than usual, both since the week was too busy to go shopping and Saturday being 11th Night. Then on Sunday Anja actually got started at about 3pm, so we ended up eating the main course at 11pm! Well, that’s what the nibbles are for….

Potluck Menu


  • rolls
  • garlic butter
  • olives
  • pickles (5 kinds, plus pickled eggs)
  • cheese


  • Peas in a bag
  • Berry sauce for red meat (over mix of beef/grated carrot/onion, the “longship filling”)
  • cod with glazed roots


  • comfits
  • 100’s of 1000’s

Recipes – Can all be found from this page.

Pictures are being added and updates on the recipes (as it says in the list)

The King’s Singers – Gaudete (arr. Brian Kay) – The King’s Singers – To celebrate the Christmas season we’ve recorded a few of our favourite Christmas carols, for you to sing along with us from your homes. For Christmas Day (in what is certainly an unusual year for Christmas celebrations in the UK) we’ve decided to release this medieval carol, ‘Gaudete’ in an arrangement by our former bass Brian Kay. We’ve also included the score, for those of you who fancy joining our ranks for a couple of minutes!

Album: frofro – Christmas-music in the 10th – 15th centuries

The ensemble Ioculatores joins forces with the pure voices of girls choir Schola Cantorum Leipzig to introduce the listener to the rich world of medieval Christmas music. Ranging from instrumental pieces featuring organ, harp, lute, fiddle and shawm to strictly vocal songs, this recording produced at the Romanesque basilica in Wechselburg gives an impression of the ideas people have always had of heavenly jubilation.
