will england :: food : AEthelbross

Greetings from Lothar,

A few months back while I was visiting the West Kingdom I was asked
for an AEthelbross (Scots Oat/Scotch drink) recipie. Initially, I was asked
to posted it to West Kingdom mailing list, but, since any recipie worth
posting is worth posting worldwide, I decided to send it to the Rialto
instead. I hope you don't mind.

I got this recipie from a friend of mine who got if from a Laurel
in Michigan. I've tasted it and it's excellent. I've never gotten around to
making it myself though.

AEthelbross

Ingredients
2-3 cups rolled oats
2-3 cups water
1-1 1/2 cups more water

4 cups Scotch (the better quality the better the brew)
1 cup honey
1 cup cream or Half-n-Half

Equipment Needed
Two large bowls
measuring cup
spoon
cheese cloth

Makes 1/2 gallon

Instructions
1. In a large bowl mix oats and water, stir, let the mixture sit
until the water is totally absorbed (overnight).

2. Add 1-1 1/2 cups more water to the mixture, let sit 2 hours.

3. Strain oat/water mixture through 2-3 layers of cheese cloth
into a large bowl by squeezing and wringing globs of oatmeal through
the cheese cloth until oats are nearly free of water. This is messy and
requires a lot of effort! Reserve pressed oats for oat cakes.

4. Add scotch, honey, and cream to oat-water. Mix until all
ingredients are are blended.

5. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Best served cold.

AEthelbross is an alcoholic Scots punch. I don't know if it's Period,
but all the ingredients are concievably available in Period. In any case,
it's delicious. It is quite alcoholic, but the oats, honey, and cream
hide the alcoholic kick and "fill your stomach". It's delicious, dangerous
stuff.
