Long before the advent of processed sugars like molasses, European bakers relied on honey to sweeten baked goods. In the 16th Century, the gingerbread bakers of Torun were famed for their use of the highest quality flour and honey, which derived their unique taste from the forests and fields located along the Vistula River. Their gingerbread was formed into wonderful figures using hand-carved molds like the ones we use today, for confections made with locally produced ingredients from the Boundary and Okanagan.
