180 gm Gold Tin
Made with the same base recipe as all handmade Star Rock. Ginger is not only a great taste, but in pure form is also well known to help with feelings of nausea, morning and sea sickness. Like all our Star Rock, the recipe is so old that we only use real oils not false flavours, and the real Ginger oil is purported to have such stomach settling benefits.
Handmade in just over 4 kilo batches, hand pulled and then rolled on a marble slab in the Star Rock Shop kitchen. Once rolled to the right thickness the humbug shape is formed by the long rolled rods being hand turned through a very old humbug machine. The humbugs are left to cool, then gently tossed to break off any jagged edges and coated in sugar powder to prevent sticking.
The humbugs go directly into these food grade tins allowing us to avoid using plastic packaging. As no preservatives or artificial flavours are in this traditional old recipe they can be prone to sticking if not kept cool, however a wee shake of the tin every now and then should solve the problem if it occurs.
Due to the weekly hand made batching of all our rock products - every batch may vary in natural golden colour and thickness.
All handmade Star Rock products should be treated as fresh goods with a short shelf life, and kept in a cool dry position. Once opened, keep rock in a cool place, out of sunlight, or the fridge in summer and eat within 6-8 weeks.
