Yesterday was Michaelmas, or the feast of St. Michael the archangel. I wanted to post this yesterday, but I had a few wine making glitches last night and was wiping peach juice off my ceiling instead.
I wanted to incorporate a few Michaelmas customs into our day. I started with making bannock for breakfast using this Navajo Fry Bread recipe. I’ve never made or eaten much bannock in the past so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Hubby described them as “sort of like a pancake, just less tasty”. Maybe I need to try a different recipe.
Traditional eating blackberries is a Michaelmas custom, but they are way too expensive to buy up here. Instead I bought concord grapes and we ate those instead. I also used them to make concord grape jam.
And for dinner, I had grande plans to roast a goose, but I roasted a rabbit instead. Maybe next year… Overall we had a fun Michaelmas. Do you celebrate Michaelmas?
