Stone Soup

Remember the children's tale about a neighborhood meal built around a pot of boiling water and a rock? Chiffon Staebler of Knight Ridder Newspapers looks at modern versions of the story and SCA practioners of it as well as the geological consequences of boiling rocks.

Staebler quotes Karla Macelli of Redford, Michigan who experienced a stone soup meal at an SCA event. He also offers a recipe by Canton, Ohio native Rochelle Kramer who feeds her brew to kids at the McKinley Presidential Library.
