"Beltane" means "bright fire" and is also known as May Eve, May Day and Walpurgis Night.
It is the midpoint between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice and It is also the celebration of spring

The God and Goddess are represented by the May King and Queen, and the tradition of dancing 'round the maypole represents their unity - the pole being the God and the ribbons the Goddess, wrapped around him. It is also traditional to perform the Great Rite to bless your land on May's Eve.

Beltane is a festival full of fun and merriment, usually associated with lots of singing and dancing, fire jumping and raucous behavior - it was seen as a brief respite from toil when winter was now only a memory and the summer and harvests were but a few months away. It is the last of the Spring fertility festivals and the most joyous.

A simple Beltane recipe for the festival is below:



Beltane Custard
Ingredients:2 cups milk
1 cup unsprayed marigold petals
1/4 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 to 2-inch piece vanilla bean
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. rose water
whipping cream

Instructions:
1. Using a clean mortar and pestle reserved for cooking purposes, pound marigold petals.
Or, crush with a spoon.
2. Mix the salt, sugar, and spices together.
3. Scald milk with the marigolds and the vanilla bean.
4. Remove the vanilla bean and add the slightly beaten yolks and dry ingredients.
5. Cook on low heat.
6. When the mixture coats a spoon, add rose water and cool.
7. Top with whipped cream, garnish with fresh marigold petals.
