Bite 24 – gingerbread
‘Tis the season to stock my gingerbread survival kit. In it I put fairly traded and powdered ginger and true cinnamon. I also have on hand some powdered clove, cassia and allspice. A combination of date molasses and maple syrup provide the sticky sweetness that goes so well in gingerbread cookies, cakes and scones.
I love gingerbread! Starting November and going into January it is a warm and comforting food that becomes one of my winter staples. To learn more about the origins of gingerbread, see the following link:
