Vernoem na 'n Romeinse ouderling wat gepleit het vir die hars van wyn

In antieke Rome is wyn van die lug af verseël met 'n denneboomhars, wat 'n duidelike geur gelaat het. Ousia, 'n binnekort oop restaurant in Midtown Manhattan, gebruik die resina om sy Plinius Spritz te maak.

Ek wou vandag die werk besoek van 'n jarelange bydraer en dierbare vriend van die Recipes Project – Jennifer Sherman Roberts. Jen het meer as 'n dosyn wonderlike plasings op die blog geskryf oor onderwerpe soos “The CIA ’s Secret Weapon: Dorothy Pompeo ’s Christmas Fudge Recipe “ “ Mucus Cure Alls: Snail Waters and Spa Treatments “ “Of Krimpvarkies, walvisvomiete en vuurasemende poue ” en 'n steek in tiemie?: Waarom is daar so min breipatrone in resepteboeke?. Soos u kan sien, het ek dit moeilik gehad om net een pos van Jen's te kies om weer te publiseer. Maar aangesien so baie van ons tans probeer om tuin te maak, het ek gedink dat die onderstaande berig oor rosa solis 'n gepaste lees kan wees. Geniet dit! Elaine Leong

Kan ek nie genoeg kry van Jen's skryf nie? Hier is 'n handige lys van alle poste van Jen ’s op die RP.

Ek hou van mooi woorde. Ou, mooi woorde.

Die probleem met ou, mooi woorde is dat dit baie bedrieglik kan wees.

Terwyl ek (elektronies) deur die resepteboek van 'n mevrou Corlyon uit 1606 (Wellcome MS. 213) blaai, het ek verskillende geneesmiddels teëgekom vir vervelige mediese probleme: hoes, puisies en puisies. Ek is genoeg van 'n historikus om te weet dat net omdat iets saai klink, dit nie beteken dat dit so is nie, maar ek het steeds bly draai en op soek na 'n resep om my verbeelding aan te wakker.

En toe sien ek dit, die perfekte aandagtrekker: "Die maak van 'n Rosa Solis."

Rosa solis: Hoe heerlik! Gegewe die moontlike Latynse vertaling van “rose of the sun, ”, kan dit selfs alchemies wees! My hart klop vinnig ...

Ek het bietjie gesoek. Een kyk na die prentjie, en ek is getref deur die glansende skoonheid van hierdie plant.

Die plant self is nie net heerlik nie, die resep uit mevrou Corlyon se boek vir rosa solis corial water klink goddelik:

Neem 'n halwe blik op die herbe genaamd Rosa Solis, wat byeengekom is voor die Sonn do aryse aan die einde van Junie of begin Julie. Kies dit en lê dit op 'n bord om die hele dag droog te word. Neem dan 'n kwart van 'n Pounde of Reisons of the Sonn the Stones uitgehaal: Six Date as 12 Figges. Sluit al hierdie dinge effens aan, en plaas dit in 'n groot mond van Glasse. Neem dan Lycoresse en Annisseedes van elkeen 'n eie Cynamone half 'n eie lepelvol naeltjies, drie neutmuskaat koljandersaad en karwijsaad weerspieël 'n halwe egs. Kneus dit alles en gooi dit in die glase, voeg daarby u Hearbes en twee pond van die beste suiker, fyn geslaan en 'n pot goeie Aquavite. Roer dit dan goed saam, en as u hierdie ding het, stop die glans, baie naby, en sit dit dan in die Sonn vir 7 of 8 weke, en draai dit gereeld in die Sonn, maar laat dit staan ​​waar dit kan reën kom nie daarheen nie en skud dit gereeld saam en as dit so lank is, druk dit uit en gooi die water in 'n dubbele glans en hou dit vir u gebruik. En as jy wil, kan jy 'n blaar Golde en 'n greintjie Muske daarop sit.

Rosyne, dadels en vye. Drop, anys, kaneel, naeltjies, neutmuskaat, koljander en karwij. Suiker en drank. Waarvoor moet u nie hou nie?

Die rosa solis -plant is nie net mooi en hartlik nie, maar die effekte daarvan is indrukwekkend. Die volgende aanbeveling is opgeneem in die resepteversameling van Sir Thomas Osborne in die Wellcome Collection Library:

Want daar is nie die swakste mens of liggaam ter wêreld wat die natuur of sterkte verlang nie, of wat in 'n verbruik beland, maar dit sal hom weer herstel en veroorsaak dat hy Stronge en lust is, en 'n goeie maag en 'n goeie kort tydjie het, hee wat gebruik hierdie drie keer saam sal 'n uitstekende remedie en 'n trooster voorkom.

Ag, het ek gedink, 'n interessante en pragtige medisyne!

Maar hier is die ding: ou, mooi woorde kan dodelike waarhede dek.

Rosa solis staan ​​ook bekend as sonskimmel, of drosera, en dit is eintlik redelik verraderlik en dodelik. . . veral as u 'n fout is. Die sondauwplant is vleisetend. Dit groei in moerige, nat, moerasagtige toestande-plekke waar oplosbare stikstof tekort skiet. Om die tekort te vergoed, lok die sonskimmel insekte met wat lyk soos 'n vars hoeveelheid druppels, maar is in werklikheid 'n reeks slymkliere wat die insek op die blaar vasvang.

Die insek sterf óf as gevolg van uitputting (deur te probeer ontsnap), óf as gevolg van versmoring van die slym. Die sondauw skei dan ensieme uit wat die liggaam van die insek oplos.

Dit gebeur omtrent so:

(Ja, dit is vanaand se nagmerrie wat vir jou gesorteer is.)

Hierdie video's is verloop van tyd, dit kan 'n sonskimmeluur neem, selfs tot 'n dag, om 'n insek heeltemal te verteer.

Dit laat die vraag ontstaan ​​of vroeë moderne kruiedokters geweet het van die sondauw se vleisetende maniere. Was die werklike proses met die blote oog te traag om op te let?

Vroeë moderne resepte vir rosa solis cordial maak duidelik dat die plant gedurende Junie en vroeg in Julie geoes moet word. (Jennifer Munroe het die fassinerende implikasies van die gedetailleerde inskrywings vir die oes van rosa solis bespreek.) Maar het die vroue en mans wat die plant oes, geweet van sy unieke voedingspatroon?

In die resepte wat ek vir rosa solis teëgekom het, het ek geen melding gemaak van insekte of van hoe die plant voed nie. Ek wonder dan: sou die kennis van rosa solis se vleisetende maniere verander het hoe kruiedokters, wyse vroue en amateur- en professionele dokters dit gebruik het? Sou die handtekeningleer die farmaseutiese gebruik verander het?

Omdat die resepskrywer in die versameling van Sir Thomas Osborne nog geweet het dat die lot van die ongelukkige gogga vasgevang is deur die slym van die son, nog steeds die hartlike aanbeveel het om 'Strong and lustie' te laat groei?

Naskrif: Verstaan ​​asseblief dat ek nie hierdie blog kon skryf sonder om die klankbaan na "Little Shop of Horrors" in my kop te hoor nie. Toe het ek, vir die plesier, 'Renaissance Little Shop of Horrors' gegoogle. Dit is wat ek met vergunning van Mental Floss gevind het:

Rosa solis: Hoe heerlik! Gegewe die moontlike Latynse vertaling van “rose of the sun, ”, kan dit selfs alchemies wees! My hart klop vinnig ...

Ek het bietjie gesoek. Een blik op die prentjie, en ek is getref deur die glansende skoonheid van hierdie plant.

Die plant self is nie net heerlik nie, die resep uit mevrou Corlyon se boek vir rosa solis corial water klink goddelik:

Neem 'n halwe blik op die herbe genaamd Rosa Solis, wat byeengekom is voor die Sonn do aryse aan die einde van Junie of begin Julie. Kies dit en lê dit op 'n bord om die hele dag droog te word. Neem dan 'n kwart van 'n Pounde of Reisons of the Sonn the Stones uitgehaal: Six Date as 12 Figges. Sluit al hierdie dinge effens aan, en plaas dit in 'n groot mond. Neem dan Lycoresse en Annisseedes van elk 'n eie Cynamone, 'n halwe ownze, 'n lepel vol naeltjies, drie neutmuskaat koljandersaad en karwijsaad, 'n halwe egs. Kneus dit alles en gooi dit in die glase, voeg daarby u Hearbes en twee pond van die beste suiker, fyn geslaan en 'n pot goeie Aquavite. Roer dit dan goed saam, en as u hierdie ding het, stop die glans, baie naby, en sit dit dan in die Sonn vir 7 of 8 weke, en draai dit gereeld in die Sonn, maar laat dit staan ​​waar dit kan reën kom nie daarheen nie en skud dit gereeld saam en as dit so lank is, druk dit uit en gooi die water in 'n dubbele glans en hou dit vir u gebruik. En as jy wil, kan jy 'n blaar Golde en 'n greintjie Muske daarop sit.

Rosyne, dadels en vye. Drop, anys, kaneel, naeltjies, neutmuskaat, koljander en karwij. Suiker en drank. Waarvoor moet u nie hou nie?

Die rosa solis -plant is nie net mooi en hartlik nie, maar die effekte daarvan is indrukwekkend. Die volgende aanbeveling is opgeneem in die resepteversameling van Sir Thomas Osborne in die Wellcome Collection Library:

Want daar is nie die swakste mens of liggaam ter wêreld wat die natuur of sterkte verlang nie, of wat in 'n verbruik beland, maar dit sal hom weer herstel en veroorsaak dat hy Stronge en lust is, en 'n goeie maag en 'n goeie kort tydjie het, hee wat gebruik hierdie drie keer saam sal 'n uitstekende remedie en 'n trooster voorkom.

Ag, het ek gedink, 'n interessante en pragtige medisyne!

Maar hier is die ding: ou, mooi woorde kan dodelike waarhede dek.

Rosa solis staan ​​ook bekend as sonskimmel, of drosera, en dit is eintlik redelik verraderlik en dodelik. . . veral as u 'n fout is. Die sondauwplant is vleisetend. Dit groei in moerige, nat, moerasagtige toestande-plekke waar oplosbare stikstof tekort skiet. Om die tekort te vergoed, lok die sonskimmel insekte met wat lyk soos 'n vars hoeveelheid dauwdruppels, maar is in werklikheid 'n reeks slymkliere wat die insek op die blaar vasvang.

Die insek sterf óf as gevolg van uitputting (deur te probeer ontsnap) óf as gevolg van versmoring van die slym. Die sondauw skei dan ensieme uit wat die liggaam van die insek oplos.

Dit gebeur omtrent so:

(Ja, dit is vanaand se nagmerrie wat vir jou gesorteer is.)

Hierdie video's is verloop van tyd, dit kan 'n sonskimmeluur, selfs 'n dag, neem om 'n insek heeltemal te verteer.

This raises the question of whether early modern herbalists knew about the sundew’s carnivorous ways. Was the actual process too slow to notice with the naked eye?

Early modern recipes for rosa solis cordial make clear that the plant is to be harvested during June and early July. (Jennifer Munroe has discussed the fascinating implications of the detailed intructions for the harvesting of rosa solis.) But did the women and men harvesting the plant know of its unique pattern of feeding?

In the recipes I’ve encountered for rosa solis, I’ve seen no mention of insects or of how the plant feeds. I wonder, then: would the knowledge of rosa solis’s carnivorous ways have changed how herbalists, wise women, and amateur and professional physicians used it? Would the doctrine of signatures have changed pharmaceutical usage?

Knowing that fate of the hapless bug trapped by the mucus of the sundew, would the recipe writer in Sir Thomas Osborne’s collection still have recommended the cordial for aid in growing “Strong and lustie”?

I like pretty words. Old, pretty words.

The problem with old, pretty words is that they can be awfully deceptive.

While (electronically) flipping through the recipe book of a Mrs. Corlyon from 1606 (Wellcome MS. 213), I came across sundry cures for dull-sounding medical issues: coughs, agues, and pimples. I’m enough of a historian to know that just because something sounds dull doesn’t mean it is, but nevertheless I kept flipping, looking for a recipe to spark my imagination.

And then I saw it, the perfect attention-grabber: “The making of a Rosa Solis.”

Rosa solis: How lovely! Perhaps, given the possible Latin translation of “rose of the sun,” it could even be alchemical! My heart beat fast…

I did a little searching. One look at the picture, and I was struck by this plant’s luminous beauty.

Not only is the plant itself lovely, the recipe from Mrs. Corlyon’s book for rosa solis corial water sounds divine:

Take halfe a peck of the herbe called Rosa Solis beynge gathered before the Sonn do aryse in the latter end of June or the beginning of Julye. Pick them and lay them upon a Bord to drye all a day. Then take a quarter of a Pounde of Reisons of the Sonn the Stones beynge taken out: Six Date as 12 Figges. Shridd all these together somewhat smale, and putt them into a great mouthed Glasse. Then take of Lycoresse and Annisseedes of each an ownze of Cynamone half an ownze a spoonefull of Cloves three Nutmegges of Coryander seeds and of caraway seedes eche half an ownze. Bruise all these, and putt them into the glasse, add thereunto your Hearbes and two pounds of the best Sugar finely beaten and a pottell of good Aquavite. Then stir them well together, and when you have this doen, stoppe the glasse, very close, then sett it in the Sonn for the space of 7 or 8 weekes often turning the glasse about in the Sonn but Lett it stand where the raine may not come unto it and shake it oftentimes together and when it hath so long so stade, straine it and putt the water upp into a doble glasse and keep it for your use. And if you please when you have strained it you may put thereto a leafe of Golde, and a grain or two of Muske.

Raisins, dates, and figs. Licorice, anise, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, coriander, and caraway. Sugar and booze. Waarvoor moet u nie hou nie?

Not only is the rosa solis plant beautiful and its cordial yummy, its effects are impressive. Recorded in the Sir Thomas Osborne recipe collection at the Wellcome Collection Library is the following recommendation:

For There is not the Weakest Man nor body in the world that wantest Nature or Strength or that is falne into a Consumption but it will Restore him againe & cause him to bee Stronge and lustie and to have a good Stomacke & Shortly, hee that useth this three time together shall find great remedie & Comforte.

Ahh, I thought, an intriguing and beautiful medicinal!

Here’s the thing, though: old, pretty words can cover deadly truths.

Rosa solis is also known as sundew, or drosera, and it is actually quite treacherous and deadly . . . especially if you’re a bug. The sundew plant is carnivorous. It grows in boggy, wet, marsh-like conditions—places in which soluble nitrogen is in short supply. To make up for the deficit, the sundew attracts insects with what looks like a fresh bounty of dewdrops, but is in reality a series of mucus glands that trap the insect on the leaf.

The insect dies either from exhaustion (from trying to escape) or from asphyxiation from the mucus. The sundew then excretes enzymes that dissolve the body of the insect.

Pretty much it happens like this:

(Yes, that’s tonight’s nightmare sorted for you.)

These videos are both time-lapse it can take a sundew hours, even up to a day, to completely digest an insect.

This raises the question of whether early modern herbalists knew about the sundew’s carnivorous ways. Was the actual process too slow to notice with the naked eye?

Then stir them well together, and when you have this doen, stoppe the glasse, very close, then sett it in the Sonn for the space of 7 or 8 weekes often turning the glasse about in the Sonn but Lett it stand where the raine may not come unto it and shake it oftentimes together and when it hath so long so stade, straine it and putt the water upp into a doble glasse and keep it for your use. And if you please when you have strained it you may put thereto a leafe of Golde, and a grain or two of Muske.

Raisins, dates, and figs. Licorice, anise, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, coriander, and caraway. Sugar and booze. Waarvoor moet u nie hou nie?

Not only is the rosa solis plant beautiful and its cordial yummy, its effects are impressive. Recorded in the Sir Thomas Osborne recipe collection at the Wellcome Collection Library is the following recommendation:

For There is not the Weakest Man nor body in the world that wantest Nature or Strength or that is falne into a Consumption but it will Restore him againe & cause him to bee Stronge and lustie and to have a good Stomacke & Shortly, hee that useth this three time together shall find great remedie & Comforte.

Ahh, I thought, an intriguing and beautiful medicinal!

Here’s the thing, though: old, pretty words can cover deadly truths.

Rosa solis is also known as sundew, or drosera, and it is actually quite treacherous and deadly . . . especially if you’re a bug. The sundew plant is carnivorous. It grows in boggy, wet, marsh-like conditions—places in which soluble nitrogen is in short supply. To make up for the deficit, the sundew attracts insects with what looks like a fresh bounty of dewdrops, but is in reality a series of mucus glands that trap the insect on the leaf.

The insect dies either from exhaustion (from trying to escape) or from asphyxiation from the mucus. The sundew then excretes enzymes that dissolve the body of the insect.

Pretty much it happens like this:

(Yes, that’s tonight’s nightmare sorted for you.)

These videos are both time-lapse it can take a sundew hours, even up to a day, to completely digest an insect.

This raises the question of whether early modern herbalists knew about the sundew’s carnivorous ways. Was the actual process too slow to notice with the naked eye?

Early modern recipes for rosa solis cordial make clear that the plant is to be harvested during June and early July. (Jennifer Munroe has discussed the fascinating implications of the detailed intructions for the harvesting of rosa solis.) But did the women and men harvesting the plant know of its unique pattern of feeding?

In the recipes I’ve encountered for rosa solis, I’ve seen no mention of insects or of how the plant feeds. I wonder, then: would the knowledge of rosa solis’s carnivorous ways have changed how herbalists, wise women, and amateur and professional physicians used it? Would the doctrine of signatures have changed pharmaceutical usage?

Knowing that fate of the hapless bug trapped by the mucus of the sundew, would the recipe writer in Sir Thomas Osborne’s collection still have recommended the cordial for aid in growing “Strong and lustie”?
