Amalins

Amalins, small fluffy biscuits made of flour and thyme, hold deep cultural meaning for the followers of The Draconic Denary. Scared, ritualistic biscuits of The Mother, used in pre-birth rites. They are traditionally made by the grandmothers of the unborn child. Once made, while still hot, the amalins are eaten by the mother while half of the biscuits made are burnt in offering to The Mother.

Manufacturing process

  1. The flour, yeast, thyme, and salt are mixed together in a bowl.
  2. Water is added, while mixing, until the ingredients form a dough.
  3. Without kneading the dough, the biscuits are gently formed.
  4. The biscuits are placed in a covered metal pot and placed over the hot coals of a fire. Coals are also placed on top of the pot.
  5. The biscuits are cooked for 20-25 minutes, and are light and fluffy when fully cooked.

Significance

Analins are baked, eaten, and burned as an offering to The Mother while asking for the safety of an unborn child.

Really interesting tradition! Is anyone else allowed to consume these biscuits or is it restricted?

Thanks! Due to the ritualistic nature of the biscuits, only the expecting mother is allowed to consume them.
