Bochet – “Burnt Honey Mead”

Author: LadySylvia  //  Category: Geneneral Posts

So I just found this in my drafts… Better late than never?  🙂


Bochet is a “Burnt Honey Mead” found in The Goodman of Paris translated by Eileen Power.

I plan on putting this mead together over Memorial Day weekend.  Hopefully it will soften the blow of not going to Panteria with my horses…

To that end, you will find a brand new category at Meadlady!  It is entitled “Period Recipes and Redactions” and will include what recipes I can find and how I’ve redacted them.  I do not pretend to be an expert.  If you have information that will help me refine the redactions I have made, your input is welcomed and encouraged!

The first one I will include is the bochet recipe, as I need to redact it in order to prepare for the making of the recipe.  As time goes on, I will include past and future redactions for your reading pleasure!
