I’ll update you once I’ve been there 😉

In the mean time I have to share this recipe for Candied Peel that I made this winter…its the best, I’m warning you!! ha, ha, ha..

I have been buying Organic Lemons & Limes for a while now , mainly because I like to grate the peels for different dishes…It always seemed a shame to throw them  in the Compost Bin …I wont any more..Check this out..

I made one jar and have a jar of lemon syrup in the fridge! It takes quite a bit of fruit, well worth the effort as far as I’m concerned 😉

Here’s the link to the recipe I followed: you can use it for any citrus fruit!

  1. Wow! That’s amazing to think of growing lemons in Canada. My mom in Arkansas has a tiny lemon tree that she takes inside in the winter, and it really does grow lemons. I like the idea of the Christmas lights on the tree to keep it warm if the weather gets too cold.

    The bottom link didn’t work for me. I don’t know why.

    Sarah has a recipe for candied orange peel on her blog… http://cheffingit.wordpress.com/2010/05/04/taste-of-europe-series-haarlem/

    1. I know I was really surprised too !
      Thank-you for letting me know about the link I think it’ll work now. I also love this recipe on Sarah s blog, I havent seen this one, I have to try it especially with fresh candied fruit! 🙂
