Stem Ginger & Honey Fairings 200g
Originally, Fairings were presents bought at the Cornish Whitsuntide and Corpus Christi fairs. They could be little gifts for a sweetheart, like almonds, cinnamon sticks and macaroons. These fragrant, sweetly spiced fairings capture the spirit of old Cornish festivals – and with chewy stem ginger and aromatic honey, they taste pretty good too.

Over 125 years in the baking
Furniss have been crafting quality biscuits using perfected recipes since 1886.
Their story starts in Cornwall where master baker, John Cooper Furniss opened his first teashop in the centre of Truro. Every night, he would work into the small hours, preparing delicious gingerbread and celebrated Fairings ready to serve fresh the next day.
His passion for using only the best ingredients, sourced locally where possible, and exacting attention to detail quickly secured the Furniss teashop a reputation for serving up the tastiest biscuits in town.
Soon orders were pouring in from surrounding areas and Furniss had no choice but to expand. Within a decade, Furniss biscuit boxes with their distinctive logo were a standard feature in grocers and provisions shops across Cornwall.
Today, they bake as they have always done: in Cornwall using timely recipes, quality locally sourced ingredients, driven by the history of John Copper Furniss and his passion of creating the best product possible.
Furniss is now the only company in the world licensed to make The Original Cornish Fairing™ which is available nation-wide alongside their gingerbread, shortbread, oat biscuits and their new Gingers.
