After reading the letter from Nancy about the return of the Grantham Gingerbread, I thought I’d write in to tell you that we also serve Grantham Gingerbreads in our tea rooms in Ancaster.
Although we have only recently opened there, these crunchy biscuits have been a family favourite for many years - since I entered them for a WI cooking competition in fact.
I’m not sure if our recipe is the same as Nancy’s but they are delicious and I recommend trying them if you haven’t already.
One customer told me that they’d heard that the recipe was found in the walls of Catlins, Grantham when some building work was taking place. Does anyone know if this is true?
