These are sweets that shouldn’t be forgotten. They are often the stuff of our childhood. Many have regional or international roots but if you aren’t from that part of the world, you may not know about them. Here are some for you to discover and try. Many take advantage of local ingredients but the overriding consideration is that they are very simple, homey and easy to do. Your Grandmother would be proud.
