Original Gingerbread (Box of 5 trays)

Original Gingerbread (Box of 5 Trays)

Handmade in Sussex with local wholemeal flour from the Weald & Downland Living Museum, Chichester.

Inspired by a 200 year old recipe, it captures the rich, intense flavours of Regency England through the use of old fashioned ingredients like black treacle, muscovado sugar and butter.

  • Contains Gluten
  • Made on separate days to our gluten free products. (strict clean down and gluten tests are carried out on gluten free production/ bake days).
  • 5 trays of gingerbread. Each tray is 300g.

 

In 1803 Shelley asked his aunt to buy him some gingerbread from Horsham fair to take on a picnic. Gingerbread was such a popular treat that up until the First World War, gingerbread makers were established in towns & villages throughout East & West Sussex.

Horsham was renowned for its gingerbread, but the industry died with its last gingerbread maker in 1917. Almost 100 years later we created our gingerbread from an old Shelley family recipe to recapture the flavour of this delicious, lost delicacy.

These biscuits are absolutely yummie! It's such a treat to be able to buy delicious gluten-free food & purchasing via "Yumbles" made it so easy! It's the 1st time I've sampled the lemon flavour variety but it won't be the last! Every flavour well worth buying.

I wanted to say a big thank you for your gorgeous gingerbread. I was lucky enough to be given some for Christmas. I have tried many ginger breads but found them either too dry or too claggy and sticky. I will definitely be buying my own supply of gingerbread from you. Don't change the recipe! Whatever you are doing it's totally right. Love this product.

Your gingerbread biscuits are the best I've ever tasted! You're the first order of biscuits I've ever made...

The Gingerbread and especially the Ginger Thins remain my favourites. Your company is so special, most manufacturers add too much sugar and poor quality fats. Those biscuits taste flat and boring as their texture exposes their lack of quality ingredients, so they do not manage to give you a thrill. Hope your success will continue and that I can order from you in the next months again.
