What is the History of the Gingerbread House?
The tradition of decorating gingerbread houses is claimed to have begun in Germany in the early 1800s. It became popular with the publishing of the not-so-Christmassy fable Hansel and Gretel.
As they approached, they observed that the structure was made of bread, coated in cakes, and the windows were made of clear sugar.
These are the words from the original fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. It was converted to gingerbread rather than bread in later incarnations of the story. But German bakers felt the fairytale had some great ideas, and they started building gingerbread mansions. After all, why not?
Gingerbread’s precise origins are unknown. Ginger root was first cultivated in the East over five thousand years ago, and it was thought to have medicinal and magical properties. Although the actual origin of gingerbread’s discovery as a preservative is unknown, some historians believe the first extant recipe dates from around 2400 BC. Others dated it to 992 AD when Armenian monk Gregory of Nicopolis taught Christian bakers in France how to make it. According to later accounts, a gingerbread guild was formed in Germany in the 15th century to protect the interests of specific bakers.
