Spiced Milk for Imbolc
By: Moderator / Knowledgeable
Post # 1
In my coven for Imbolc we traditionally substituted spiced milk for the usual wine in the ritual chalice. Since Imbolc means either "first milk" or "ewe's milk" depending on which spelling you use this seemed very appropriate to us. This is a simple recipe and really delicious.

* 1 quart milk
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 4 cardamom pods
* 4 whole cloves
* 1 cinnamon stick
* 4 whole allspice or spice bush berries
* 1/4 teaspoon shavings of fresh nutmeg
* 1 bay leaf

Tie up all the spices in a cheesecloth square, or strain out before serving. Combine spices, milk and honey in a saucepan. Heat gently for 20 minutes (do not boil). Serve hot.

Does it matter what type of milk I use?

Nope, you can use whole milk, 2% or even skim milk. I suppose soy milk would work as well although it doesn't fit the image of the Sabbat.

I love spiced milk but i prefer it with whole milk.
Goats milk is great for this as well.
