"I am NOT an experienced candy-maker, but this turned out well for me. I cooked the sugar past the soft thread stage, so the end product was not as tender as I had imagined, but they were so neat! I dipped half of them in dark chocolate-and they really made me feel like a professional! The kids loved helping with the chocolate, and they loved eating them! My husband said he wasn't excited about them, but he was impressed that they were made from real orange peels. A great gift idea for the holidays-right after citrus season!
I am a 'hobby cook'. I love to experiement and try new things! My family will tell you that we hardly ever have the same dinner twice! I am interested in 'all natural' and 'whole foods'. I also like using as much of my food as possible-less waste. We compost, buy our eggs locally from my brother-in-law's free-range chickens, buy raw milk, cook with butter and lard and I mill my own grains to make bread and other baked goods. I have recently been learning about sourdough-and I'm really picking it up fast! I soak my grains when possible, and generally follow the guidelines in the book "Nourishing Traditions" I want to see a show on the Food Network for people like me! ;) We are called "Food Renegades" Just a thought!
