labours of the months, September
I think I made his nose too big and his feet too small, but never mind. I made them white grapes rather than the red of the original source as I’m assured white wine grapes grow better in Britain than the red (wine wasn’t a major crop in medeival england, but it was grown). My first instinct was to make the vine leaves very dark, but Gareth assures me they should be quite pale and that I’m thinking of the pickled ones you buy for amking dolmades.
