Yeast buns, traditional in Bristol, and named after Edward Colston (1636-1721) who was a merchant of the city, trading with the West Indies. The buns are made of a yeast dough, flavoured with lemon, dried fruit and mixed spice. A larger ring, which can be divided into eight segments, is also made from the same mixture.
