We didn’t have a forum foodie thread in ages. What’s your current favourite seasonal sweet treat?
Doesn’t matter if it’s not winter where you are, but it needs to be something that’s not available all year round but only seasonally, and it must be sweet, some kind of confectionary, candy, cake, sweet drink, …
Mine is Nürnberger Lebkuchen, Nuremberg gingerbread.
This is a bit of a cheat because it’s available year-round in Nuremberg, though but not elsewhere, so it counts . Where I live, it’s something for November - December, the months leading up to Christmas (many shops sadly start to stock it as early as September but I only buy it from December on).
There are variations, but mostly, they are round and available in natural, with chocolate, or with sugar icing, with almonds or without, … I love them because of the spices used (ginger, cinnamon, cloves, pimento, coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, anise, pepper) and prefer the natural variety because the taste of the spices is more intense.
What are you nibbling on currently, or would, if you could?
