    is redacting old (really old) recipes. Hearing Canadian-French growing up has helped--I can often make sense of things that, say, Polish friends are lost on. Having taken some Latin doesn't hurt.

    And then, I get to try to brew the recipes I redacted! Some ingredients no longer exist, and some we aren't sure what they are, and measurements--that's true funtimes. So bringing it to modern is interesting, and sometimes the results more so!

    Om nom nom.
