Blessed ones! How I have been amiss.
My life has been even more cloistered than usual over the last few months: both illness and the work of a monk-scribe have overtaken me at times. So I must apologise for not venturing into your twenty-first century much this year, where I understand life has been so difficult for so many folk.
To cheer you up, I hope, I have posted below the link to the other Monk's Christmas video, all about how to make two medieval pastries from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
The spices involved are celestial – ginger, cinnamon and mace – and so I grant you all permission to indulge, with moderation of course.
May you all be blessed and I wish you all a safe and hallowed Christmas.
