Just love you to death, lady. You have such a wonderful love within for old days, old ways, people of the past, and thankfully for us, the wild plants and their uses. I never miss reading your articles and hope we have many more to come. If there is a book coming, please let us know.
Annhelen, from one of my favorite states...Thank You!
It's those old ways and people of the past who shaped my life, and I'll be forever grateful for that. In this fast paced world, it's nice to roam around in my memories looking for anchors to hold on to.
Thank you so much for writing, it's good to know others enjoy the old ways as well.
Hopefully there will be a book, and if so, you better believe everybody will know about it!
Not sure I read this when you first posted it---but I may have...
WHAT are "pones"?????
I have only thought of Gingerbread as the flat, crisp cookies in the shapes of
Ginger men--or any other shape...
I KNOW that OUR ginger cookies are quite different from the ones in the USA.
The flavor is different and they are about 1.8th" thick. VERY crisp...
I love them far above any kind of Gingerbread available here--but i have never made them myself.
Also--would your "wild Ginger" be equivalent to the ground Ginger you can buy as a spice?
Thanks--and Have a wonderful Holiday season-- Gita
