You think you know medieval cookery? You know nothing! Before we throw your useless hide off the wall, at least learn how to make some proper Snow.
You know nothing, Snow!
2 cups heavy cream
3 egg whites
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp rose water
Fresh Rosemary Sprigs
1 small green apple
Pour cream, sugar, and rosewater into a bowl.
Beat the mix until it’s as stiff as a frozen corpse.
Pour the egg whites into another bowl.
Beat them until they form peaks as stiff and tall as the mountains beyond the wall.
Gently fold the egg whites into the whipped cream.
Poke some deep holes in the top of your green apple.
Gently slide some fresh rosemary into the apple so it looks like trees rising from a grassy hill.
Pile your fresh Snow over the apple and around your serving dish to make a bleak winter mountain scene.
Add patches of gingerbread at the base of the mountain to symbolize the lifeless brown soil peeking through through the Snow.
Use this medieval dessert to suck up to black cloaked guards, pretty redheaded girls, or blue skinned ice zombies.
(While most of these illustrations are for original geek recipes, this one is based on an authentic medieval recipe for “Snowe.” Once I saw it, I couldn’t resist. You can read more about it at the fantastic website, Medieval Cookery.)
