Food for Mabon

Here are more ideas for dishes you can make this Mabon, either by yourself or with family and friends. If you have a dish you always prepare this time of year, please share it with us!

  • Apple Cider—a traditional drink of fall that can be used in ritual as well as out. You can buy it from the local farmer’s market or you can make your own.
  • Apple Pie—Do I need to say more?
  • Apple SauceThis is one of those things that a lot of people grew up making at home with mom and grandma. It’s a comfort food as well as a Mabon one.
  • Autumn Spice GranolaI stumbled upon this recipe and it has me contemplating making granola for the first time!
  • Butternut Squash Cake Rollhere’s one to combine squash with some sugar. Okay, maybe a lot of sugar!
  • Caramel Apples—making caramel apples is an easy, kid-friendly treat to make. Most stores will have pre-packaged caramel you can melt onto an apple in the microwave, or you can make your own very simply with some milk and caramel candies.
  • Corn and Squash Soup—Soup anyone?
  • Cranberry Sauce—this is something I associate with my family’s Christmas celebration more than anything else, but it still falls under this harvest category. You can buy the canned version from the store, or here’s a popular recipe to make your own.
  • Crispy Rosemary Chicken and PotatoesChicken and rosemary are both traditional foods for celebrating Mabon, so putting them together is a no-brainer.
  • Fried Zucchini/Squash—yummy, but not necessarily good for you. Cut your zucchini into round slices, coat each in flour and fry in a skillet with some vegetable oil until they’re crispy and brown. We alternate between cooking the heck out of them and leaving the centers still soft.
  • Fruit Salad—easy to make, just combine whatever fruits you have on hand and eat together, or sprinkle with sugar to draw out those natural juices for a fruit salad in syrup.
  • Honey Maple Cookies—what’s a celebration without some sweet?
  • Pumpkin Cheesecake—Pumpkin, pumpkin and more pumpkin!
  • Pumpkin Zucchini Bread—I’ve already touted my love of this recipe, but here it is again!

Now, I’m not sure about you all, but I’m about to fall over with hunger! Get to cooking, and let us know how your Mabon dishes turn out.

Mother’s Blessings,



About Ayslyn'sCorner

I am an eclectic Pagan bordering on atheist who has made her way through a number of different spiritual spaces. You might wonder what a person self-identifying as an atheist has to discuss in a religion/spiritual context – and, well, so do I. That’s one of the things I aim to explore on Ayslyn's Corner.
