Ingredients:4 c honey
1 tsp white pepper
1 lb breadcrumbs (a loaf's worth - use cheap bread)
sugar to sprinkle on top
1 Tbsp ginger
whole cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
Preparation:If you plan to draw with the sugar, mix it up with powdered
spices/herbs: Gules - cinnamon or sandalwood; Vert - dried parsley or
mint; Or - turmeric; etc.
Boil the honey, skimming any foam that forms. Throw in the breadcrumbs
and stir constantly, until the bread has soaked up all the honey. Stir
in the ginger, cinnamon and pepper. Turn it out and knead it until it
is smooth, adding a little flour if necessary if the dough is too
sticky. Then put it in a square pan. Set whole cloves in the top in a
pattern (in this case, we used them to outline the armorial charges),
then sprinkle the colored sugars where desired (think of
Notes:Note: I chose to leave out the sandalwood (saundres) which, Leche Vyaundez
indicates, is only to make it red, since I want to use red in the
decoration -- I found red sandalwood, incidentally, at my local occult
bookshop... LV also suggested the cinnamon.)
