Before you make this recipe, listen up. This does NOT taste like modern gingerbread. The texture is very different, and it is way spicier.
An ancient person would probably comment first on Western multicultural food, before even noticing the skyscrapers.A skyscraper would be like Yggdrasil, a God/Creation artifact known only in abstract myth and legends. But food was something they could physically handle and taste, thus could make a better comparison against how advanced or not, we were.
I have also often thought about how Medieval people would react to skyscrapers.
My immediate reaction was that this was too sweet. But then I compared it to Flora’s Lebkuchen, which I very much like, and which has a greater sweet:flour ratio than this recipe for Medieval Gingerbread. Maybe I will give it a try. If I don't like it, I can always build a skyscraper.
