Gunns Bakery appeared on BBC's Saturday Kitchen programme last weekend, with a slot dedicated to its famous Bedfordshire Clangers.
June Goff, a baker from the traditional family craft bakery, established in 1928 in Sandy, Bedfordshire, demonstrated to viewers how to make a gammon and apple clanger.Clangers were traditionally made by housewives, whose husbands would go to work in the fields of Bedfordshire. They are similar to a Cornish pasty, but without the crimping. They have a savoury filling at one end, usually meat or vegetables, and a sweet filling at the other, like jam or apple.Goff said Gunns was the only bakery she knew that still made clangers.
