Recipe: Sangoire

"Poets describe Sangoire as 'blood spilled by moonlight'. It has taken me several years of studious research to recover this recipe. It was once the specialty of the guild before Kresk was destroyed, which considering our Lord is a vampire comes as little surprise."

Cateloge Number: R-01




Ingredients
Madder Plant (Grown for 5 years) – 1lb
Chalk – 3 oz
Alum

Directions
Take the Madder plant, which have been growing for a period of five years, and harvest it in the late fall or early winter. Remove the roots and dispose of the rest as they contain no dye.


Soak the roots in water and give them several good washings to remove all the soil and debris. It is important to make sure they are thoroughly clean, lest the dye become contaminated. While the roots are still wet chop them into fine pieces.


Take the diced roots and add to a vat of cold water. Now take the chalk and dissolve it in hot, not boiling, water and allow to cool. Add the chalk to the vat and mix together. Allow the solution to ferment for seven days, covered with a tight lid to prevent mold, stirring several times per day.


On the seventh day strain the solution through a fine silk sieve several times to ensure no debris is left behind.


Before dying the fabric soak the cloth in a solution mixed with Alum overnight to ensure best application of the dye. Completely submerge the cloth in the dye for four days. When removed the cloth should appear to be of a rich dark red bordering on black. If not, allow it to soak for an additional day at a time until the proper color is achieved.
