RealPagan- Paganism for the Real World

Alright, So this is my first post on this site ever. 

My friend and I are planning a Beltaine celebration for us and a few of our close friends. I have been charged with the menu and I am at a loss. I don't know what foods would be traditional or acceptable for this celebration. I have done a bit of research on the festival itself, I know that fresh herbs and fruits/veggies are a good place to start. We are aiming toward a more Celtic feel. 


I guess what I am asking is what have you guys done for Beltaine feasts and what would you suggest? Any wines or menu items are acceptable answers!

bannock is traditional (oat cakes) grilled over your Beltane fire, if possible.

Some traditional Beltane foods are the first fruits and vegatables of the season. Sweets such as fruit tarts (my personal favorite) or anything using honey are a good choice. Honey mead would be a good drink to offer the adults.


Is mead an actual drink? I am quite uneducated in the varieties of alcoholic beverages, I read about mead in the old story Beowulf, I thought it was an archaic or simply made up drink.
Oh yes, and it is delicious! On a group here, Harobed posted a recipe to make your own (which I haven't tried yet).
