Wish Me Luck Entering A Competition at SCA June Crown!
« on: June 19, 2008, 09:09:41 PM »



Okay wish me luck! I am entering a competition for our Silver Spoon that is Food with Flowers.

So instead of just making 1 single dish? I am doing an entire meal!  Each fit with the flower theme, I even have a Fine Spice to add to the Pate, that has Saffron within!

1st Dish

Salat with Herbes and Floweres

2nd Dish

Chicken Pate with Herbed Bread

3rd Dish

Fine Cakes with Rose Conserve and Cherry Conserve

Beverage
Rose Soda

I hope it works out!!!

Cilean :D ;D :o

Wow!  That sounds amazing!  Rose soda?!?  How on earth did you do that?

My family and I are still only in our first year in the SCA, and still trying to find our niche.  Sadly, we don't have as much time to devote to it as I would like, but still have lots of fun anyway.

Good luck in the competition!

I will wish you luck.  I also have a receipe for herb butter if you would like it.  Especially since I KNOW at every event honey butter abounds and this might make a sensation.

 ;D :D ;D :D
I WON I WON WOOOT WOOOT  I DID IT MY FIRST WOODEN SPOON!!!


The Rose Soda is not carbonated but it is called Soda, it should be called Syrup!

There were 5 competitors and there and they brought their A game!

I was very happy to be called up to receive my first Wooden Spoon!



Here is the Recipe for 'Rose Soda'

Adapted from The 'Libre de Diversis Medicinis' in the Thornton
Manuscript (MS. Lincoln Cathedral, A.5.2


"Rose Syrup: Tak an vnce or twa of roses & sethe tham in water to
the ij partis be sothen in. Than clene it thurgh clathe & do suger
ther-to & sethe it to it be thikk as hony & vse as thu dose the tother."

Interpretation: Take an ounce or two of roses and seethe them
in twice as much water until they are soft. The strain them through cloth
and add sugar. Reduce it until it is the thickness of honey. The use it
as you do the other.

My Redaction:

½ Lbs Rose petals cleaned
4 cups water
½  lbs Sugar or ½ lbs Honey
2 tbs Rose water
Mint leaves (Garnish is optional)

In a saucepan place the water and the sugar on high heat for 20 minutes or until the sugar dissolves, then reduce the heat to medium.  Add petals and Rosewater, an lower your heat to a simmer for at least 60 minutes, or until the mixture is reduced by half.
Allow to cool and bottle.  You can add this to lemonade or to cold water to make a lovely drink.  You can garish with the mint leaf or you can place roses into the cup.

Theniel, I'm not sure about your local group, but if you're free next Saturday, you may want to come over to Peru, IN for the Royal University of the Midrealm. You can take some classes and make some local contacts while you're there. I will be there as will several of my friends from the north/northwest burbs of Chicago.

You don't have to be a member to attend SCA events. There is usally a gate fee. Just show up and pay the fee. I think Midrealm Crown tourney
is the only event listed.

The Arts & Sciences competitions can be interesting. There does not appear to be overnight camping.

I am in the Barony of Fettburg, in the Principality of Cynagua, in the Kingdom of the West. Phew! A mouthful!  If you tell me where you are? I can find someone for you to chat with!
