Cranberry Infused Maple Syrup
We introduce to you our Maine Cranberry flavor as the Celtic Goddess of Death and Battle - The Morrigan!
The Morrigan was predominantly a Goddess of War and Death, the fearsome Phantom Queen! She was also the Goddess of Prophecy and Fate, and saw the future of all things, including the end of the world. She was all-knowing, and would share her knowledge of the future for a price. Her prophecies were always true and her wordings were exact, if somewhat of a riddle. She was an aspect of Royalty and Warriors and like the Raven, the Morrigan can always be found present on the battlefield. She is known to cause fear and confusion among soldiers to move the tide of battle to her favoured side.
As a shapeshifter who took many guises; she would often appear in multiple forms throughout a story. Most common of these forms - were a shapely maiden, a battle ready warrior-queen, an old crone, and, of course, a raven. While she could take the form of other animals beyond a raven, the Morrigan did so less frequently.
Her appearances at the deaths of prominent figures have caused scholars to link her to spirits appearing later in Irish folklore, such as the Banshee, or “fairy woman.”
One of the most prominent aspects of the Morrígan was her nature as a triple goddess of war. In many stories, she appeared as both an individual and as three goddesses acting under a single name.
It is without doubt that the Morrigan is one of the most powerful female figures in history and the fiercest Goddess is Celtic myth. Use this dark red syrup in ritual as a libation where aggression, force and crushing victory is needed. It can also be offered to shift ones shape, for shadow work or powerful sex magic.
For the Kitchen Witch, this syrup is great on or with:
A Traditional Roast Dinner, Pancakes, Waffles, Cocktails.
WytchWood syrup starts with the sap from maple trees grown in central Vermont. The sap is then boiled in the Spring and infused to create a delicious Gingerbread & Marshmallow Maple Syrup. Each bottle is hand wax-sealed, blessed and unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan Sabbath or Folklore Icon. They are designed as libations but can be used for anything Kitchen Witch related as well.
I loved this over chocolate chip pancakes. It's like a thinner jam, just the right balance of tart and sweet. Another winner!
Delightful, powerful. Wonderful on just about everything; makes a great offering, I need to buy some more bottles!!!
This is my third order from WytchWood in the last month or so, since I found them, so that tells you something! I’ve loved every syrup we’ve purchased so far, and Morrigan is no different. Delicious for drinks, pancakes, ice cream, and even for cooking up some savory dishes.
The cranberry and the maple flavor are perfectly balanced. I'll definitely be buying again!
Cranberries are one of those items that we keep on hand all year. I love them. When I saw this syrup from Wytchwood it landed in my cart at lightning speed.
So, here's the thing: It isn't just good, it is invaluably versatile. I've, thus far, used it on flapjacks and ice cream; in sauces, coffee and tea, and cocktails; as a sweetening agent in cranberry orange salad and muffins. It makes spoons taste GREAT!
Currently, my bottle is 2/3 air. That simply won't do at all. Time to reorder and hide a bottle to give as a gift. 😉
Thanks again, Wytchwood!
It just tastes so good! It almost tastes like a very thin jam- in the best way possible.
