Name for medieval food or drink...

Post by MrHemlocks » Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:09 am

Might any of you know what is the name, sometimes given, to crude medieval food or drink? It is a generic name that looks 'something' like grage?!?!? It could be used to describe goblin food for example. The goblins sat around an open fire an ate their meager meals. The 'grage' was horrible but they seemed to enjoy it!

I know I am horribly misspelling it and I can not find the spelling anywhere...but maybe here?
