Christmas is a week away and I don’t know about you, but I still have a lot left to do. Thankfully, I have a pretty clear week in which to get them done. Unfortunately, I sort of ran out of time this weekend and there are still too many balls in the air to have a finished topic today. However, I can show you a few things that I am hoping to get done in the next few days.
The first one is to finish up this batch of candied orange peel. There’s lots of recipes out there for making candied orange peel. Here’s a good one. Orange peel is a pretty essential ingredient in a lot of my Christmas baking, but it’s also fabulous to eat on its own. It’s also good dipped in dark chocolate!
Next on the agenda is to work on making another batch of panettone. I made a batch last week using a new recipe, but it didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked. It was a recipe I had in my files that I definitely got off the internet, but now I can’t find it. Funny.
Anyway, it was good, but not quite the texture we’re used to, so I want to make a few adjustments and try it again. I may be able to talk about it later this week if it works out!
In the meantime, this brings us to the end of my 12 Days of Christmas Blog series. It’s only one week until Christmas! For one more entry into the Christmas treat box giveaway, leave a comment here before noon eastern standard time tomorrow (December 19). I’ll announce the winner in the early afternoon and hope to get that box shipped out soon after. Thank you so much for joining me these past 12 days! See you tomorrow!
