Samhain is a Gaelic Pagan Holiday that celebrates the end of the Harvest season and the beginning of Winter. It’s a midpoint between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. This is a celebration that focuses its intent on rejoicing in the Harvest and eating as a ritual. When you are celebrating Samhain, you tend to eat food items that are reflective of the harvest. It’s a beautiful way to connect with Earth and follow the natural crop cycle. For this October, I have put together a Witches Samhain Board to celebrate this passage.
- 10 figs
- ½ cup dried apricots
- 1 package of whole wheat grain toasts with dried fruits
- 2 Eggplants
- 1 Bunch of grapes (I used Moon grapes and they were delicious)
- Sweet Peppers
- Pomegranate Seeds
- Purple potatoes
- Tiny Mozzarella balls
- Feta Cheese
- Boil potatoes to the point the knife slides outs, cut them in half and place them in baking sheet, add Eggplants.
- Season both with 1tbs garlic powder, salt, 1tbsp olive oil (drizzle both potatoes and eggplants) and ½ tbsp white pepper. Bake for 45 minutes.
- Arrange white cheese pieces in the same of the moon and from there arrange other items for contrast.
Place a saying over the food and make it into a celebration. You can close the saying with I am one with the Moon, so I trust, as above, so below.
