Lughnasadh Recipe - Magic Herb Toast

earlier European peoples

Lughnasadh is the first harvest-the promise of spring's planting realized. Sometimes known as the Feast of Bread, Lughnasadh is a time for kneading, baking, slicing, and eating this basic food. Lughnasadh originally marked the first-harvest festivals of earlier European peoples, for whom it didn't fall on a specific date.

Prepare a few whole-grain loaves on this day if you make your own bread. For something simpler, yet in keeping with the energies at work, make some corn bread.

Other traditional foods include all berries, crab apples, and grains. Barley soup, popcorn, and even beer (due to its ingredients) are also appropriate foods.

Enjoy the following recipe for Magic Herb Toast, with your favorite beer, to celebrate your Lughnasadh "Feast of Bread":
