Horsham's Regency Gingerbread has been a long time in the making - it is based on a 200 year old recipe created by the Horsham based Shelley family. Regency Gingerbread is a fusion of darkly rich molasses, the tang of citrus fruit and a gentle hint of ginger. The time-honoured recipe creates a gingerbread that is delicious to nibble on its own and wonderful with ice-cream. Served with a cup of tea, it sure beats a digestive biscuit!
Traditionally, gingerbread makers in Horsham would have sourced their flour from local mills. Horsham Gingerbread is continuing this tradition by using flour milled by Lurgashall Mill, which is a working mill at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, Singleton, Chichester, West Sussex.
As well as Regency Gingerbread, it's well worth discovering two more delightful products ...
Sussex Gingerbread Thins: Crisp biscuits that are less gingery than the gingerbread, made with butter, unrefined sugars and a hint of ginger. Produced in Sussex using locally grown linseed meal, these biscuits are naturally gluten free.
Sweet Sussex: A cheese biscuit created to perfectly complement the array of stunning cheeses produced in Sussex. These are also made with locally grown linseed meal and are naturally gluten free.
