There are a few spices that instantly say Christmas to me. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger. The scents of any of those wafting through the house is enough to fill your soul with the sound of jingle bells! In my opinion, the best of these spices is ginger. I think the attraction to ginger during cold winter months is the delicious warmth that it spreads through you, hot - but not chilli-hot.
What better way to spread a little warmth and festive cheer than to celebrate gingerbread! This versatile little item has so many forms at this time of year, biscuits, cakes, even made into houses!
