Authentic Tudor Butter Beer

Butterbeer

This recipe is sure to keep your dentist’s Benz rolling.

Taken from an authentic Tudor recipe, butter beer is known most recently as a drink fancied by Harry Potter and his ginger friend Ron. *

This drink contains egg yolk.  If you are put off by this, think of a delicious creme brulé.  Same idea.  The egg is cooked in the beer, so you won’t catch the lockjaw, triganosis or scurvy.
