2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Yeah. But still yuck!  May none of us ever be that hungry!

Nah, if you really want yuck, there's that bit in Farley Mowat's Never Cry Wolf where he decides to eat mice whole to get maximum nutrition out of them. We don't eat Paleo anymore for a reason.

I had forgotten about that!!!  Though we still eat low carb. Not because we want to, because we both have health problems if we eat much in the way of carbs.

I may have to try that, in fall when the quinces are available; I've always wondered what those are like. I'm scratching my head over "succade" though -- from context, it might be candied ginger?

Antique recipes are fascinating. I have a book called "Food in History" that has things in it like a Roman recipe for stuffed dormice (not inclined to try that one...).

I understand succade is candied peel of a citrus fruit.
You're only given a little spark of madness, you mustn't lose it.

OK, that makes sense. And also reminds me that the 'candied citrus peel' sold around here is mostly diced turnip soaked in citrus syrup. The modern food industry is weird. One reason I'm interested in the historical stuff.
