Kemper Hall sat on the banks of Lake Michigan and had been an all girls boarding school for many years. The year before I started there they admitted “day students” and also, lucky for me, they allowed boys to attend as day students too. Lunch each day was served in the old dining hall where students were seated at tables with a teacher (many of which were nuns in full habit) or some adult administrator, including the headmaster and principal. Being the picky eater that I was, I did not eat the lunch prepared at school. Instead I would bring my trusty old peanut butter and jelly sandwich from home and eat in the back room along with a few of the other “day students” including my best friend LuAnne.
The only time we ate in the old dining hall was for special events during the year such as the Epiphany Banquet and the Founder’s Day Celebration where we all wore our matching white dresses. O.K., so what does Snow Pudding have to do with all of this…..get to the point Leigh Anne… The one dessert I remember being served at these special events, and that I have remembered for over 30 years is…. When I think of Kemper Hall, I think of Snow Pudding. So when I found the recipe in “Sara Moulton Cooks at Home” I had to try it. One of the best things about this recipe is that the Snow Pudding has NO FAT (now if you add the Vanilla Sauce it is a different story) and it is delicious served with fresh berries. Sara describes it as follows, “Imagine a lemon meringue pie in which the meringue itself has been charged with lemony tartness and the gluey filling jettisoned. Snow Pudding may well take you by surprise” My neighbor Hannah taste tested it for me and loved it and has been asking me when it was going to be on the blog – so here it is Hannah!
Special Queen #1 is known to have been developed out of a cross between Power Bud and Skunk #1. It’s not a descendent of Big Bud, but is believed to be a cross between Power Plant and Early Skunk. Power Plant is believed to have been developed from a landrace African Sativa and Early Skunk is a cross between popular favourite Skunk #1 and Early Pearl. Even though Skunk features to heavily in the genetics of Special Queen #1, you wouldn’t really think it from the taste or aroma. Certainly the flavour has notes of skunk, but the emphasis is on fruity sweetness. Similarly, the aroma is juicy-fruit fresh without much skunk in evidence at all. With 18% THC, Special Queen #1 will regally wave away pain and banish negative thoughts and feelings with its upbeat, refreshing lift. As the lift gently fades, you’ll find yourself feeling safe, relaxed and comfortable in what is probably best described as a strong body buzz, not quite a full-body stone, which can really eat into your day, but certainly enough to make you take a bit of time out to enjoy it. As Special Queen #1 is a balanced hybrid, it’s suitable for use at any time, although if you do use it in the daytime remember that you will need a bit longer to come back to reality than you would with a strain which was more Sativa. Special Queen #1 has an interesting approach to growth, essentially it will typically grow to fit the space available. Indoors you’ll be looking at a height range of 80 cm to 1.4M, but outdoors it can easily stretch as high as 3M – assuming it has space to do so. On the plus side, Special Queen #1 has Indica compactness combined with Sativa branchiness, so it’s a good candidate for plant training. Indoors Special Queen #1 will be ready after just 7 to 8 weeks of flowering and can yield up to 500g/m2 and outdoors you can be looking at as much as 500g per plant. We’ve classed Special Queen #1 as being moderately difficult to grow purely because of its propensity to grow as much as it possibly can, which means that for many people, plant training is going to be a necessity and while this is straightforward (and there’s plenty of help on the net), total beginners might want to try growing something a big less vigorous first (perhaps AK49 Auto). Apart from that, Special Queen #1 is a very straightforward strain to grow. In the 1990s there was a mad dash from seed breeders and sellers to find that ultimate skunk. During this period, lots of growers tried to replicate that Mexican, Colombian, Afghan hybrid which resulted in a huge variety of new generation skunks. The genetic features of these cannabis plants would eventually lay the foundation for almost every marijuana plant in Europe. At Royal Queen Seeds they decided to introduce a typical skunk hybrid at a low-cost price, perfect for a first-time grower who doesn’t want to invest too much in his experimental growing. This Special Queen is a classic skunk that grows with ease, doesn’t stretch too much and can be harvested in 8 weeks. Indoors it will grow to 1.5 meter, so it will need a little more room. It needs lots of good sun but is also suitable for northern European climates like in the Netherlands or Great Britain. A sativa-dominant, its buds are spread out all over the plant, unlike typical sativa. Care should be given to provide it with all the nutrients and water so that it will need to grow big and strong, but the grower must make sure not to give it too much. This strain is relatively easy to grow with little maintenance. Perfect in both hydro and soil set ups, Special Queen is well-suited for the sea/screen of green operations. Generally, 8 weeks of flowering are recommended for this strain; however some growers have harvested as early as week 7.
