Recipe: Ginger and Rosemary Braid

Bread with aromatic herbs
February 05, 2010

GingerI made this bread for Imbolc (February 2nd), because it's braid shaped and it uses ginger, rosemary and cloves, the Imbolc herbs.


This bread can be served with cheese, but also with butter and jam.

You can use the same herbs for a tea, and enjoy it during a cold afternoon, while hoping that spring will come soon.

The ginger+rosemary combo was delicious. The ginger aroma was stronger in the fritters than in bread.
