Coming to a Stiffe Paste

IMG_8412-001  The grated stale Manchets, ginger, Cinamon, anniseedes, sugar, and claret are boiled all together in a posnet till they come to a stiffe paste.  The stiffe paste of the To make Ginger Bread receipt (recipe) is now in my red ware bowl cooling.

  1. That is something I’ve always wanted to make. How old is that recipe? I have a recipe I’ve been meaning to try from Goode Cookery.

  2. Thank you for your kind comments. The receipt (recipe) I used for “To make Ginger Bread” is from “Delightes for Ladies” by Sir Hugh Plat, 1609.
