Kin Food

hello friends, im an elfkin and i often come across the problem where i crave the texture/weight of meat, but get sick with guilt when i try to eat meat. to all the other elf/fae/any kinds of kin that also experience this struggle, i have found that cherries- the kinds with the pits in them- are a great substitute! theyre very “meaty” little guys, without the guilt factor.

ive also found that around these times, or the times when meat isnt such a guilt trip but i still rather have lighter foods, seafood is a godsend. things like salmon and shrimp are awesome when youre looking for lighter, “cleaner” foods while still getting the protein you need to remain healthy.

i also noticed, while sifting through the harry potter tag, a bit of a struggle to find savoury foods that are still wizardy. im not an expert on wizardkin, but i do live around the wizarding world of harry potter! these recipes arent going to be the exact ones they use at the parks, but here are some of the entrees/heavier foods that they serve at the leaky cauldron/three broomsticks!

there are more but they’re a bit generic- ribs, turkey legs, smoked chicken, but those above are decidedly the most british and harry potter-y. with the opening of the new park (july eighth), theres bound to be people trying to replicate the new candies and dishes as well so i’ll keep an eye out for those!

also, to my fellow earthkin, pumpkin juice is absolutely fantastic and relatively good for you. im embarrassingly addicted to the stuff- it tastes just like home.

I'm dragonkin and I'm really fond of lamb, just putting that out there for other dragons.

In looking for some good harvest recipes, I wanted to find some with magical intent.  Not finding any, I have come up with one of my own. More to follow.  What are some of yours?

                                    Witch’s Stew

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 lbs. lamb cubed
  • 1 medium onion (chopped) - for protection and weight loss
  • 6 potatoes, preferably Yukon gold (peeled and quartered) - protection and compassion
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • Salt - (to taste) - for grounding and protection
  • ground pepper (to taste) - for protection and purification
  • 1/2 tsp thyme - for love, psychic awareness and purification
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary - for protection, conscious mind, healing and love

In your  cauldron, dutch oven or wide pot heat one teaspoon of the oil  (avoid using an aluminum pot)
Divide lamb into 3 batches and brown, set aide into a bowl.  Wipe pot and add another tsp oil between each batch
Heat remaining oil and saute onion until golden brown (10-15 minutes)
Add meat and juice, stir clockwise (doesil)
Bring to a boil then let simmer for a  minimum of 1 1/2 -2  hours
Add potatoes and broth, stir clockwise
add salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary, stir clockwise
Bring to a boil then let simmer for another hour
After looking at the magical properties of most of these ingredients its no wonder they call this a comfort food.
