Nuremberg is the home of Lebkuchen for two main reasons… the city sits at the crossroads of the spice trade, and the surrounding area is known for HONEY. The honey made the Lebkuchen or Gingerbread last longer. Knights, soldiers, travelers and monks would fill their bags with the delicious cookies and cakes knowing that they wouldn’t mold or rot. And the spices? They make everything taste better!
For hundreds of years bakers have producing these delicious cookies for all to enjoy, and now you can have them too!
