Why not throw a theme party? Here are some interesting ideas for food for a pirate themed party
Honey Cake
. 1 1/2 dl of honey
4 eggs
1 dl of sugar
2 spoons (or more) of ginger
1 spoon of jamaica pepper
4 dl of wheat flour
Grease a tin about 1? litres in size. Warm up the honey so that you can stirr it easily with a spoon. Whip up the eggs til they?re white, mix them with honey and spices. Finally stirr in flour and pour it all into the tin. Bake in oven for about 30 - 40 minutes in 175?C. Take it out, leave it for a day and serve with butter.

O?Hanlons stew
4 portions
use a deep stewpan
300 g of pork
300 g of beef
a bottle of fine porter
2 - 3 slices of dark bread cut into dices
3 - 4 potatoes (Not very historically correct, I know. But it tastes better)
3 dl of cream
50 g of butter
Fry pork, beef and half a glass of porter. After about 5 minutes you can add the sliced potatoes. When the potatoes starts to turn golden, add cream, porter and the dark bread and maybe a little salt and pepper. Let it cook for about 10 - 15 minutes. Serve with white bread and india pale ale.

Hard Tack (sea biscuits)
Mix one teaspoon of salt with one pound of flour.
Add enough water to make a very stiff dough.
Flatten the dough to about 1/2 inch and cut it into about 4 inch circles. Punch holes in each circle with a fork.
Bake in a flat pan at 250 degrees for two or three hours.

This next recipe is for the really adventurous
Pirates and Bone Soup (accompany with Hard Tach)
Here's what you need
. A pot full of any kind of bones will do (beef, chicken, pork) - A miscellaneous mix would be great.
. Add your favorite vegetables and potatoes. - You know.... just cook up your favorite pot of soup but make absolutely sure its packed full of bones.
. Add your favorite herbs and spices. (this is where witche's and healers do their magic touch)
. Most Important!!!!! The magical ingredient is VINEGAR! You must add some vinegar to the pot of soup in order to force the calcium in the bones to dissolve from the bones into the soup juice.
Just 1 pint of soup can give you as much as 1,000 milligrams of calcium. Wow!
Now let the bones stew for 4 hours or even longer.
Make sure all the meat has either fell off the bones or just starting to fall off the bone before you serve. Bones add tons of flavor to all recipes! is a learning environment that enables children to learn effectively, while having fun.
