A Challenge! Rammalation Biscuits for Rogation Sunday

lupaglupa | Apr 20, 2008 01:01 PM

The Sunday before Ascension Day is traditionally Rogation Sunday. In England the tradition used to be that Rogation Processions (when the parish "beat the bounds") were followed by drinking "ganging beer" and eating "rammalation biscuits." While there are lots of references to Rammalation biscuits no one seems to know what they were! No recipes, no hint of what the ingredients were - just a name and a traditional time for serving them.

Here's my challenge - Chowhound can decide what Rammalation Biscuits should be and I'll make them and take them to our Rogation Sunday celebration. Any takers?
