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
ClovesGood luck, prosperity, friendship, stopping rumors, love, sex
HoneyBinding relationships closer, sweetening relationships and people, fertility, prosperity

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.

  1. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon
  2. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

    During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

    It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

    I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

    Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer
