Life Lessons Learned Through Baking #1
I bake for the pure enjoyment of good-smelling mind therapy. I’m also a prime candidate for a good metaphor. Combine the two and it’s a really great day.
Today’s recipe for Candied Citrus Peels:
“Prepare the peels and boil in hot water for five minutes. Drain the water, refill with fresh water, boil again for five minutes. Repeat this process three more times, each time with fresh water. This removes the bitter flavor from the peels.” And to gild the metaphoric citrus-peel-lily, “…let the peels sit overnight to dry and coat them thoroughly in sugar.”
In an airtight container, they will last for about a week;)
Amen to that.
