Christmas is HERE after Summer
In Finland, it starts to get quite cool in the middle of August. By September, it is normal weather that is cooler than 10 degree Celsius.
It makes me sad that summer is over. But in Finland, Christmas is finally here! In the middle of September, you can already find Christmas products in the candy section of the supermarket.
Gingerbread is an indispensable part of Christmas. Finnish recipes often use gingerbread spice mix for many bakings. Of course, this spice is so familiar that it can be bought in any Finnish supermarket, but it is hard to find in Japan. However, it is easy to make by simply mixing a few spices.
