I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Up to 2 years ago, when I thought of beer, I thought ‘bitter’ and ‘it’s a man thing’.
So when I started researching historical brewing I was floored to find out that, for most of history, in most of the world, women have been the brewers.
Add to that the fact that the brews my ancestors in England would have made in their kitchens (yes, kitchens!) was sweet, not bitter and I realised that everything that I thought I knew about beer was wrong.
If you’re curious, listen to today’s @ancestralkitchenpodcast. In it, I share much of what I’ve both learnt and experimented with the last two years.
I’d love your feedback on this episode! Tell me what you knew, didn’t know, what surprised you the most and how you feel after hearing what @farmandhearth and I share :-)
