Great holmertz 2021-06-08 4:04

Hello Chris,
I remember tasting the mead (mjöd) here in 1965 or '66. I can't recall being particularly drunk, so you could have tried it with no fear. The pronunciation of the ending "..ang" resembles fairly well that of French "...ant". Did you find out the meaning of what is written, with several abbreviations, on the sign? It means "Odinsborg mjöd, the old genuine, please note the royal inscriptions on the horns".
You would have got a royal autograph with the drink.
I don't think there were many vegetarians among the Vikings.
Nice photo from a good angle of these quite picturesque buildings. Very good colours and sharpness.
Regards,
Gert

I think Google doesn't quite know how to handle abbreviations.

I forgot the 'coffee m.m.' M.m. stands for 'med mera' = 'and more'.

Hi Gert and Chris,

How strange, in Polish, it is called MIÓD (pitny = drinkable). See:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mead_i..._mi%C3%B3d.JPG

Mead in Poland has been part of the culinary tradition for over a thousand years.
Not for me, though, I do not eat honey, nor drink any alcoholic beverage.
Have a nice evening

Malgo
