    Hi to all you foody girls,

    Not to be taken too seriously, given the topicality, but archaeologists are trying to make sense of their findings at Stonehenge and associated sites. They have suggested mince pie type food might have been with us since neolithic times. The following recipe was suggested, although some of the ingredients are not exactly to hand in a typical food larder.

    Recipe: Neolithic-inspired mince pies (makes 6)
    —- edit: courtesy of English Heritage

    To make these vegetarian, simply swap the lard for a vegan or vegetarian fat product.

    Ingredients:

    For the pastry:
    2 x handfuls of emmer flour
    ½ handful of hazelnut flour
    Knob of lard
    A few drops of water

    For the filling:
    Four crab apples or small sour apples
    A few blackberries
    A few sloes
    Pureed rose hips (about a spoonful)
    A spoonful of honey

    Plus:
    A handful of whole berries
    A couple of crushed hazelnuts

    For the decoration:
    Some linseeds and a drizzle of honey for the tops

    Method:
    1. Preheat your oven to 210C electric /190C fan/gas mark 5. Cut up your compote filling ingredients and put them in a saucepan on a medium heat, stew until tender.

    2. Mix the flours with the lard and a few drops of water until you have a firm dough.

    3. Create six circles for the pie bottoms, and six slightly smaller circles for the tops. Place the bases into cases in a muffin tin and spoon in cooked compote.

    4. Take lids and brush one side with water and place water-side down, pressing the edges to seal.

    5. Once all of the lids are on, brush their tops with water and sprinkle with honey, linseeds and crushed hazelnuts.

    6. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.

      It’s obviously a neolithic Krusty Crab restaurant serving krabbie patties.

      Obviously I may be influenced by watching Spongebob with my  grandchildren.

      Stonehenge is surrounded by mystery. It is said that people gathered from all over the Britsh Isles. They certainly feasted and there must have been food venues. What could they be?

      There were the Scots so the must have been a Mac Donalds.  I would also imagine a Neandos too. Durrington Walls ice cream, Sarsons vinegar………….

        Hi Angela,

        No kidding there were certainly ‘mac’s’ that turned up for the winter soltice. 2,000 bc, and they brought their own take aways. They’ve analysed DNA from remains of pigs and cattle that should have been in Scotland.

          They could have had concerts if it had a roof – The Rolling Stones springs to mind……Or plays – A midsummers nights Dream….

      ”Knob of lard…”

      That required a two minute break before I could continue! LOL!!

      I’ve been called worse!

      I will look this up. Got a link? And just how much volume is a knob anyway? Perhaps an un-sanitized handful from the ancient cook?

      😂 Barb (This is fun! Thanks, Marti!)

          Thanks, Marti!

          I’ll forward the link to my brother-in-law in Yorkshire. He’s a GB junkie. And I just love all the pubs and communication breakdowns!

          And thanks for the recipe. I will forward that to him too. I’m sure between him and his Yorkshire SO they’ll have much to say about it. She’s such a sweetie! I love chatting with her and I’m getting good at it!

          💓 Barb 😊

        Barb…..I’m sure if you were a caveman, dealing with a knob of lard, you had a real problem….

          I doubt Viagra of any sort was needed in Neolithic times since no one lived beyond 23 years of age! Oh to be in my 20s again! Say, pass the lard will ya and stay still! LOL!!!

          Just call me “Stone-Hen”!

            I don’t think I could have kibitzed like this back in my 20s!

            God bless you, Grace!

            I may be pushing 60, but I’m sorta looking forward to the things I’ll say once I’m in my 80s and all my filters are off!

            :B
