Quince Marmalade – Le Menagier De Paris

TO MAKE QUINCE MARMALADE, take quinces and peel them, then cut in quarters and take out the eye[114] and the seeds, then cook them in good red wine and then strain through a strainer: then take honey and boil it for a long time and skim it, then put your quinces in it and stir thoroughly, and keep boiling until the honey is reduced by half; then throw in powdered hippocras, and stir till cold, then divide into portions and keep it.

Picnic at Petersham Park

We had such a great time at the last picnic, that we’re doing a second one, but this time at Petersham Park, Petersham from 11am – 3pm.

Co. Staple and Friends will be meeting in Petersham Park for a pot-luck picnic, some hand-craft and talking all things C14th living history.

Bring a sandwich, or a plate, and come and say hi!

Modern clothes and picnic – not a period event.

Bring hand crafts, research materials or whatever C14th stuff you’re into right now.

It’s free, it’s kid friendly and it’s open to all.
