Christmas is synonymous with Gingerbread – the ginger flavoured biscuit that is wonderful to dunk into your tea or to nibble on throughout the day. According to certain researchers, the first gingerbread houses were the result of the well-known Grimm’s fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel” in which the two children abandoned in the forest found an edible house made of bread with sugar decorations. Ginger was not only tasty, it had properties that helped preserve the bread thus making this treat last longer.
