13 Fang-tastic Family Films your Little Monsters will love This Halloween

One of the main reasons Bangers and Balls have come up with the Halloween festival is to prize children away from their screens and spend some good, old fashioned, family time together.   We are creating bonds and memories that will last a lifetime, either out in nature or around the kitchen table.

That being said, we at Bangers and Balls don’t think that the screen is the root of all evil.  What we do believe is that story is what brings us all together, and story on screen is no exception.  The Magic of the Movies is something that can enchant and bewitch us all, young and old. Something that, when experienced together as a family, has the power to unite us in delight, fear, excitement and joy.

Brace for the Turkey Nightmare before Christmas 2021.

t’s a bit of a cliche these days to say that Christmas comes earlier each year. In the Kitchen Table Revolution, we started preparing for yuletide festivities way back in January when we set aside a special jar of home-made marmalade. It continues throughout the year, having just bottled our stash of Sloe Gin and visited a pear tree (minus the partridge) to gather the main ingredients for this weekend's make; Rosehip and Pear Jelly (see recipe below). The perfect alternative to cranberry sauce to go with this year's Turkey.

Juniper 101; Terrific Tipsy Tales and Sozzled Stories.

Researching for this blog I opened a veritable Pandora's box of folklore.  Apparently juniper could be used for anything from Protecting your home from thieves and witches, treating burns and even a vaginal douche. Oh, and making Gin of course.

It is my job to distill the stories to the very spirit of what this seemingly powerful plant meant to our ancestors and indeed still means to many people today. This is no mean feat, as Juniper turns out to be one of the most widespread shrubs in the Northern Hemisphere, being found from the arctic tundra in the North, right to the edge of the tropics in the South, and everywhere in between.

Foraging Fairy Tales: Elder - North American Folklore

When I think of Native Americans I am guilty of being influenced more by old cowboy films than real life.  In my mind I see feather headdresses, redskins and peace pipes.  I also hear the very haunting, smooth montage music as my ‘Indian Brave’ is at one with nature and sending smoke signals across the […]

 Also known as: Bear’s Garlic, Gypsies Onions or Ramsons/Ramsins. When it comes to wild garlic, I just can’t get enough. Since first scouting it in March, I've spent many a walk lining my (now lightly fragranced) pockets with bushels of the stuff.
