Just a few photos for today’s post. During Harvest Feast, the SCA shire of Bitter End held multiple competitions to find their defenders in different disciplines for the next year. There were two competitors, one of them a youth who also entered last year!
The winner of the title for the year made a hood in the style of the Skjoldehamn find – she hand spun the wool and thread, dyed it, then wove the fabric for the hood and constructed it. Amazing!
The youth contestant made three different varieties of medieval-style apple sauce. I think that one was just apples (and sweetener?), while one more had beef broth, and another I think had almond milk.
She had lots of different sample cups available, and asked people to try each flavour and vote on their favourite. I loved the interactivity with this display!
I did try all three flavours, and liked the plain one best, and the beef one least. She told me that the beef one doesn’t age well either… LOL
