1 1/2 pounds or five medium-sized apples, cored, peeled and cut into chunks

3 tablespoons water

2 egg yolks

2 tablespoons brandy or rum flavoring

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon butterGround ginger and cinnamon to finish

Place chunked apples in a saucepan and add just enough water to cover them. Bring them to a boil, then simmer on medium-high heat until they are mushy, about 30-40 minutes depending on the variety. Drain off the water and run the apples through a blender or food processor to puree.Return the puree to a saucepan off heat, and beat in the egg yolks, brandy or rum flavoring, sugar, and butter.Return the saucepan to the stove and slowly bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Once itโ€™s bubbling, take it off the heat again and pour it into a dish. Allow this to cool completely before serving. Sprinkle with ginger and cinnamon to finish and serve

The Podcast

All Things Tudor – The Podcast, coming soon.

๐ŸŽง Historian, USA Today bestseller and Pulitzer nominated author Deb Hunter presents All Things Tudor, the podcast that blows the dust off the history books and brings the world of the Tudors roaring back to life! The power. The sex. The scandals. The romance, and the ruthlessness. Join Deb and her amazing guests as they pull back the curtain and reveal the real lives of the Tudors.

What people are sayingโ€ฆ

The All Things Tudor podcast with Deb Hunter is irreverent and fun, informed and approachable with an emphasis on entertainment. Deb is a highly qualified historian but also a bit rock n roll, and her outsider status gives a perfect opportunity to embrace the topic and give it a fresh and exciting take. The predominantly US/UK cultural dynamic adds a creative perspective to the show.

The Royal Tudor Project

A few months ago Dr Carol Matthews and I created a poll in the All Things Tudor group on Facebook asking members for ideas regarding an online course.

Four topics were clear winners so we’ve decided to create four short courses on:

Lady Jane Grey

Mary, Queen of Scots

Mary I

Elizabeth I

Iโ€™m very excited to announce that we are now ready to begin the courses in association with All Things Tudor. Each class has limited space and we’re looking for a small group of Tudor history lovers.

Dr Carol Matthews is an academic British historian now teaching online. She is accustomed to to teaching university students via online courses. Deb Hunter, an American, is a USA Today bestselling author and historian who is repped by Past Preservers Casting. She has a B.A. in British and American History with an emphasis on the English Renaissance and Reformation.

This project is only for those who love the Tudor period.

The Royal Tudor Project is a series of four workshops (one on each of the most popular topics), a weekly group Zoom call and an exclusive FB community created specifically for the The Royal Tudor Project. In return for your time and feedback you get the chance to work closely with two qualified historians, a gorgeous thank you gift, and all four courses.

The Project begins on Monday 29th November but we want to offer it exclusively to All Things Tudor members and followers first. The price below is only available until the 19th November. After that we will be offering it to the public at $197. The value of each course is $30 so all four will cost $120. Order courses only here. The special offer for Royal Tudor Project costs you $147 – thatโ€™s a difference of less than a single course! There is limited availability. We are deliberately keeping this to a very small, exclusive group because we genuinely want to work closely with the participants.

Purchase a gift certificate as the perfect gift for yourself or someone you know who loves Tudor history.

You can sign up with this link – once the spots are filled there will be no further access to the project .

Anna of Cleves with Heather Dairsie on Clubhouse

Heather Darsie works as an attorney in the US. Along with her Juris Doctorate she has a BA in German. She is currently studying for her Masterโ€™s in Early Modern History through Northern Illinois University. She runs the website MaidensAndManuscripts.com. Heather has been researching the Von der Mark (Cleves) Dynasty for roughly ten years.

Using German sources for her first book, Anna, Duchess of Cleves: The King’s Beloved Sister (Amberley 2019) looked into the political reasons for Anna’s marriage and swift annulment with Henry VIII of England.

Her second book, Children of the House of Cleves: Anna and Her Siblings (Amberley 2022) looks at the lives of Anna’s sisters and brother, and the impact the Von der Mark Dynasty had during the 16th century.

You can find Heather on Twitter under @HRDarsieHistory, Instagram under @HDarsieHistory, and on Facebook under, “Heather R Darsie, Historian”. She is most active on Twitter and Instagram. You can also visit Heather’s website and connect with her there: https://maidensandmanuscripts.com/

About Anna, Duchess of Cleves: The King’s Beloved Sister:

Anna was the โ€˜last woman standingโ€™ of Henry VIIIโ€™s wives โ€’ and the only one buried in Westminster Abbey. How did she manage it?

Anna, Duchess of Cleves: The King’s โ€˜Beloved Sister’ looks at Anna from a new perspective, as a woman from the Holy Roman Empire and not as a woman living almost by accident in England. Starting with what Annaโ€™s life as a child and young woman was like, the author describes the climate of the Cleves court, and the achievements of Annaโ€™s siblings. It looks at the political issues on the Continent that transformed Annaโ€™s native land of Cleves โ€’ notably the court of Annaโ€™s brother-in-law, and its influence on Lutheranism โ€’ and Annaโ€™s blighted marriage. Finally, Heather Darsie explores ways in which Anna influenced her step-daughters Elizabeth and Mary, and the evidence of their good relationships with her.

Was the Duchess Anna in fact a political refugee, supported by Henry VIII? Was she a role model for Elizabeth I? Why was the marriage doomed from the outset? By returning to the primary sources and visiting archives and museums all over Europe (the author is fluent in German, and proficient in French and Spanish) a very different figure emerges to the ‘Flanders Mare’.
