Mabon As A Kitchen Witch: Celebrate The Harvest With A Meal


Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

Times of harvest, like Mabon, are always a great time for a kitchen witch to put more care into the foods you cook and eat.

Mabon has many traditional foods and activities that encourage gathering the family and cooking up some kitchen witch staples like fresh baked bread, stews, and more.

Traditional Mabon Food And Drink

With so many foods ready to be harvested, Mabon brings many delicious tastes and smells.

Generally, any food that you associate with autumn is seasonally appropriate for this holiday.

A kitchen witch, though, might care more about what they serve. Below are a few of my ideas to bring witchcraft into your holiday meal.

Plan A Mabon Feast

These foods can, of course, be eaten separately at any time during this season.

But for Mabon, I encourage kitchen witches to invite a few guests over and put loving energy into the foods they cook.

Alternatively, ask your guests to each bring something.

If your guests are pagans or witches, you can even ask them to put an intention into the food they bring.

Decorate your house with Mabon decor, and enjoy the company of your closest friends and family.

Mulled Mead And Wines

Mulling, or warming spiced alcoholic drinks, dates back at least to the Roman conquest of central and northern Europe.

The practice has become less common over time, but this is still a well-loved tradition for autumn and winter in many areas of the world.

You can mull your own mead and wine easily with a crockpot.

This is a tradition best shared with a group of friends and loved ones.

When making your mulled mead, consider the correspondences of the spices you are adding.

They will guide your intentions to bless those drinking the mulled drink.

SpiceCorrespondences
CinnamonSpirituality, success, healing, protection, prosperity, good luck
AniseCalming, good luck, protection, psychic awareness
OrangeLove, divination, luck, money, happiness

Fresh Baked Bread

Mabon is in large part about harvesting grain.

That’s why this is an essential time for baking magick into bread.

Bread can hold any kind of magick within it. What you bake into the bread will imbue each loaf with magickal power.

As you knead or stir, use that time to meditate on what you want for your loved ones in the coming year.

Place all of your love and best wishes into your bread, and that power will bake into it.

Anyone that eats your bread will then be blessed with your love and magick.

Apple Recipes

I love working with apples. They are magical fruit.

Don’t believe me? Cut one in half, and you’ll see the pentagram of apple seeds within.

Apple recipes can be used to weave love, longevity, friendship, healing, and beauty into the lives of those that eat your food.

Pumpkin Spice Recipes

Colder weather means pumpkin spice everything!

The spices that make up a pumpkin pie spice mix represent autumn perfectly.

They are warming, cozy, and remind us to slow down and be present in the moment.

You can make your own pumpkin spice latte, but there are many other recipes that a kitchen witch can spice up.

Chai Tea

With similar flavors and spices as pumpkin pie spice, chai is in when the weather gets cold.

A good chai

adds warmth to your morning caffeine kick. It’s naturally sweet but also spicy, in all the best ways.

Tea magick is simple and effective, perfect for a kitchen witch that doesn’t have much time.
