Caudle Cups Photos

Caudle cups are deep cups, with two handles and a cover which came into style in about 1650, though this drink is much older. Caudle is a thickened drink used to restore health, thus the need for two handles. Caudle might be wine, milk or ale thickened with flour, oatmeal or egg. It was sweetened and spiced.
