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.
This is probably my favorite WytchWood syrup. The maple and cranberry play beautifully off one another, the cranberry bringing a much-appreciated tartness to contrast the sweetness of the maple. Would highly recommend.
All the syrups I've tried from WytchWood have been delicious and their Morrigan syrup is no exception. It tastes like cranberry jam; tart and sweet and fruity. I've been putting it in cocktails and WOW is it good.
Definitely great if you’re someone who doesn’t want something too sweet. It has a nice tartness to it and I actually used it a few days ago on some toasted and buttered English muffins bc i had no jelly. It was AMAZING!
This syrup has such great cranberry flavor. I used it instead of sugar in some cranberry walnut bread I baked and it turned out so good. Super tasty on anything where you want sweetness and a bit of tangy cranberry flavor.
Thank you so much for this wondrous concoction! I have experienced it on (Gluten Free) breads, waffles, biscuits, and of course licked straight off the plate (I mean, why wouldn't I?) Excellent. I will definitely be back on the site soon to pick up some more of this glorious goodness. Stay safe, be kind and enjoy life :)
Love this! I wasn't exactly sure what to expect with this cranberry flavor, but it's now among my favorites! Sweet with a tanginess that really makes the tastebuds happy!
If you are a fan of Wytchwood's maple syrups this is a must try & must have for your kitchen! I cannot wait to try this in so many recipes! My favorite flavor thus far! I hope Wytchwood carries this one year round because I have so many recipes I plan to try!
