I like to research for the origin of things, especially cooking. It is often thrilling to see how our grandmothers did things. This time, I am searching for old fashioned recipes for Christmas, such as spekulatius recipe, stolen cakes, etc. I know there are some goodies that need a whole month of preparation before baking. Also, recipes you can store for a period. If anyone can oblige... My thanks in advance.
I know... there's nothing better than home cooked traditional recipies at Christmas.... Peep into this amazing Christmas Blog at http://christmas4all.blogspot.com to check out some really cool stuffs and unique ideas
I have a couple recipes from my husbands Czech Grandmother that I love for Christmas.
One is Houska - a bread with golden raisins and slivered almonds and mace as a spice.
The other is Kolacky - a danish like desert. Yummy.
