Did you know that Nostradamus enjoyed making jam?

Prophecies and Jam, what a fantastic combination. Nostradamus was renowned as a prophet. He is most known for successfully predicting the French revolution, the World Wars, and the election of Donald Trump but he was also an apothecary and enjoyed making jam. His book ‘Traité des fardemens et confitures’ aka “Treatise on Make-Up and Jam” appeared in 1555.

Some of these remedies are questionable with the love jam recipe using ingredients such as the blood of seven male sparrows. This is a very far cry from the sweet homemade jams found today. Back in the day sugar was often seen fit for kings or nobles.

If anybody happens to have a copy of this book please feel free to send it our way. In the meantime we will scour the net.
