Rowan Shared by Ivan of Trafalgar
I had shared much of the discussion of the Rowan tree with a friend of
Scottish descent. I rec'd this today. Thought it might be of interest. I
still have not learned what it might have to do with Christmas.
Yours Aye, Ivan of Trafalgar
The book I was reading on the rowan tree was the Country Diary of Garden
Lore. It says that the Rowan was always considered a magic tree, and
particularly in Scotland there would be a branch in every home to keep away
witches. Also gave a recipe for crabapple and Rowanberry jelly to be eaten
in the fall with a stubble goose. The book is a companion to the book
Cattern Cakes and Lace, which has recipes and customs for every month of the
year. I reread it all the time.
