A historic sweatmeat recipe found on Cook It!
A medieval sweetmeat to be eaten at the end of a meal. Sugar was an expensive luxury so honey sweetened foods were popular. The range of imported spices used would still have made this an expensive dish. Galingale is an aromatic spice, a little like ginger, but worth using if you can get it.
This dish is not unlike modern honey dishes which you might know, such as baklava.
