About this recipe: A favourite in Cornwall for well over a century. After Easter, Whitsuntide fairs were enjoyed and people bought "fairings" for their loved ones to enjoy. Ginger fairings were sometimes gilded to make them more special.
I made these yesterday, I have been looking for a Cornish Fairings recipe as I have been unable to find mine and this was basically finally the recipe I remember. Anyhow , had I not have already known how to make them the instructions are lacking in information, this is why the three stars. The end result however was lovely. - 14 Jan 2016
