Balls with nettles
And what is Gingerbread? It turns out that this word is a diminutive of the word "kolob" (the rolled up clod, dumpling made of unleavened dough). The gingerbread man is a purely Russian product, the emergence of which was accidental. The bun was the remnants of a different flour (wheat, oat, corn), everything in the house was. Variety of flour, different cross-section of the grinding provided the product excellent taste. This was, among peasants, the reason for the creation of fabulous stories about the gingerbread man. As for the ancient recipe of the gingerbread man, "the paintings of the king's meat," created in Muscovy in 1610-1613 g, referred to the dish "Kolob", consisting of 3 blades of flour, semolina, 25 eggs, and 3 grivenka fat govharaga. My balls, of course, not up to Royal, and they are prepared steamed, not baked. But I think you'll like them.
