If anyone had told me a couple of months ago that I'd be writing this review, I would've said they were delusional. For I knew I didn't want anything to do with this book. This saga actually began when Barbara Daca's book, "One Pot Witchery", was brought to my attention and it sounded so wonderful to me that I planned early on to give myself a copy for Yule. But when the time came to order it, I discovered through a friend that there were christian references, as well as many other beliefs, scattered throughout the entire book. I was somewhat upset, even emailed Barbara herself to explain why I simply could not order her book. Her response was excellent, but this book would not ever be found in my house.

Then just about the middle of December, out of nowhere thoughts of the book and Barbara started crossing my mind, much to my lack of interest. But I finally even looked at the book again and reread the reason why I disliked it. Again I was satisfied and put an end to that thinking. But the next day actually brought a big holiday greeting from Barbara via snail mail. I was astounded. Why on earth would I ever cross her mind? This whole thing was rather confusing to me and I spent a couple of days in deep thought. I finally could not ignore tha fact that even with its inclusion of christianity, I was meant to have the book. I ordered it and it arrived before the end of the month. When you are pulled to anything as intensely as I was to this book, you have no doubt that there is something important in store for you. Here I am now sharing with you my opinion of the book,

"One Pot Witchery ~ Stone Soup: the Hidden Grimoire of the Kitchen Hedge Witch".

**********

Everytime that I read this book, I find that reading a cookbook sounds strange.

The book is just a gem! Firstly, it is a cook book with wonderful food and bread recipes, but it also has recipes for soap and salves and ointments, and shampoos and conditioners -- and beer and mead! You could survive with the practical information contained within this book. On most pages are also various wisdoms included; sayings, rhymes, small spells, etc... I started leafing though to familiarize myself with what recipes were where and found myself reading the book for about an hour and an half straight. So glad I made this purchase. I am now planning to purchase additional copies for my friends.

If I had paged though this book first I would not have bought it. It reads like Daca's personal cookbook and journal, which I suppose it is. It's interesting in terms of folklore and blending traditions (I was surprised at the number of Christian references) but there wasn't much here that was especially useful to me. There is a table of contents but no chapter or section headings in the main body of text. Most of the book consists of country recipes interspersed with folk magic spells. There is also no index. So on the off chance that you do find a little spell you like on a page between recipes for fluffernutter sandwiches and refrigerator pickles, you had better mark it because you won't be able to find it later.

Much of the information seems to be handed down from earlier generations, to the point where it's not all relevant. The lengthy instructions for making lye from wood ash and the recipes for canning are out of date and possibly unsafe. Some is pointless--there is a recipe for a butter sandwich. No joke.

Some of the herbalism bits were interesting, but I would have liked to know more about the source. She gives recipes for magical salves from the Leech's Book of Bald, but nothing about their applications, uses, or safety.

Her list of sources at the end (medieval herbalists to Scott Cunningham) made me realize what this is: a perfectly valid personal practice of a hedge witch, cobbled together from ancient and modern sources. But what works for one doesn't always work for another. Get a cookbook for recipes, the Foxfire books for Appalachian folklore, Cunningham for magical herbalism and anything from Llewellyn for spellwork. Copy the bits you like into your own grimoire, and you'll be in good shape.

Plus she kept misspelling "gallon" which drove me crazy.

"Stone soup" for those in the craft is a great cookbook. It has some lore as well. I love the information and inclusion on herbs. It is not a cover to cover read, but I did find myself walking through every single page when I unwrapped it from the mailbox. Highly recommended.

I found this book to include spells and magick from several valid magickal paths including the Amish, Celtic, Shaman, Wiccean, Gypsy, etc., as well as the ancient Judeo-Christian. The Grimoires of Solomon, Levi, Moses and Enoch as well as many others have always been held as very valid and powerful magickal paths and was used by many Great Witches like Alrester Crowley and the Golden Dawn. I was personally glad to see so many different paths treated equally as I feel that we can learn from all of them. Gods and Goddesses can be switched in any spell according to your desire and need. I personally found this book a fountain of knowledge and reference materials. I especially enjoyed the extensive work done on the Herbal and have used some the spells with amazing results. I personally recommend it for any level witch.
