1/1 Photo of Yorkshire Parkin
1 hr 10 mins
Remember, remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I cannot think of a reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot. Parkin is a ginger bread type food that is traditionally eaten on bonfire (Guy Fawkes) night in Yorkshire. It's good at any other time during autumn or winter as well though!
