This is the fourth of four seasonal story and festive food related episodes to take us through December and lead us to the big midwinter celebration of your choice. I hope you enjoy the slightly different focus. I will again let today’s story to speak for itself and allow it to weave its seasonal magic spell.
The Stories in this episode are Sir Cleges & The Christmas Cherries, Christmas Tree Spiders and The Apple Tree Man.
As I mentioned in the podcast this will be the last podcast with new content until 18 January as even storytelling, folklore-loving, amateur food historians need a short festive hibernation period. I have prepared some collections of just the stories from the podcast in case you need something to occupy you whilst you lie on your sofa with a wonderful leftovers sandwich and the world's biggest mug of tea. I hope to see you in the New Year with some wonderful new stories and the folklore and food to accompany them.
