Candid about Candied Peel

I have never enjoyed the taste of candied peel, so when I read that home-made candied peel was a totally different experience from store-bought, I decided to follow that advice and make my own. This year of seclusion has inspired me to try new things that were not on my radar before, and I've become more adventurous in the kitchen. There are clearly good things to take away from slowing our lives down somewhat, if we seize that opportunity - it's ours to grasp.

And, oooh, is it good! Reminds me of Boston Fruit Slices - yum.




I chopped some up to go into a special cake ... a type I've never tackled before! Let's see how this baking adventure turns out ...




This is my first ever Dresden Stolllen - a German Christmas recipe: sweet fruit bread (needs more fruit).

It looks very interesting, and I can almost taste it! I’m a huge fan of marmalade and always thought I’d try to make it although I think it requires special oranges?

I've made marmalade with whatever citrus I have ... I've never bothered about special oranges and it turns out fine 😋
