Love Notes From Freyja 10/16/15

Hail Freyja ❤

Pagan Church Lady

You are worthy.  You flail, you wander, you worry.  You look to me for approval, and I say: you are worthy.  You weep and tear and sob, and I say: you are worthy.  You wonder if you will ever be enough, and you can never not be.  You are worthy.  Worthy of love, worthy of jewels, worthy of warmth, of sex, of comfort, and sumptuous sensuality and sacred seidh.  Worthy of all I give.  Don’t forget it daughter.  You are worthy. Open your heart to receive me, and never doubt that you are worthy of my gifts, worthy of me.  -Freyja/Gefn

Vanir Month, Day 2: Honey Candy

OK, I know that I should finish my Freyr meditation that I’ve been working on, but it is taking much longer than I expected to write it all out.

So, in the meantime, I’d like to share with you a recipe that I found.

It makes a honey taffy candy that is suspiciously, deliciously similar to Bit O’ Honey.

(And no, I dunno how Freyr feels about it – but Bit O’ Honey happens to be my favorite candy of all time.)

Ingredients

1/2 c honey
1/2 c extra-chunky peanut butter
2 c dry powdered milk
1 oz almond paste

Directions

 Melt the honey, peanut butter and almond paste together in a saucepan over low heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until the soft-crack stage of 270ºF is reached on a candy thermometer.

Let the mixture cool to 180ºF.

 

Add 1 cup of dry powdered milk and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add the other cup of dry powdered milk and knead until well combined.

 

Roll out on wax paper until candy mixture is approximately 1/2 inch thick.

Cut into strips (@ 3/4 inch wide and 2 inches long). Let sit until candy is slightly hardened  and then wrap each piece in wax paper.

 

Makes approximately 8-10 servings

Prep time: 45 minutes
