    Redacted by Cariadoc
    1 c honey
    1 c breadcrumbs
    1 t ginger
    1/4 t pepper
    1/4 t saunders
    1 T sugar
    30-40 whole cloves (~ 1 t)
    (or 5 t sugar, pinch powdered cloves)
    Bring honey to a boil, simmer two or three minute, stir in breadcrumbs with a spatula until uniformly mixed. Remove from heat, stir in ginger, pepper, and saunders. When it is cool enough to handle, knead it to get spices thoroughly mixed. Put it in a box (I used a square corning-ware container with a lid), squish it flat and thin, sprinkle with sugar and put cloves ornamentally around the edge. Leave it to let the clove flavor sink in; do not eat the cloves.
    “Acorns” Redaction:
    4 dried figs
    4 blanched, toasted almonds
    8 oz. honey
    4 slices dried wheat or whole-grain bread
    2 tsp. powdered ginger
    Blanch almonds. Lightly toast almonds in a warm oven until golden and aromatic. Slice a small slit in the fig. Stuff the almond into the dried fig.
    Crumble the dried bread until it is a uniformly small size. Toss breadcrumbs with ginger.
    Boil the honey until “soft ball” stage. Blend with breadcrumbs. Using wax paper, mold a “cap” on the top of the fig out of the gingered honey bread. Hold the gingerbread “cap” until it sets. If it does not stick to the fig, add more honey.
