    Xmas Dinner Prep: Candied Orange Peel

    Candied Orange Peel Recipe

    2 oranges
    3 cups of white sugar
    1 cup water

    Cut oranges in half across the equator and juice them.



    Cut them in half again and peel pulp out leaving a clean peel. Cut into desired shape.

    Place in sauce pan and cover with cold water. Heat on high until water comes to a boil. Drain. Repeat twice more. It is very important to do this at least three times. This step removes the bitterness of the peel.



    Combine sugar and water in sauce pan and boil over high heat until temperature reaches 230 degrees F.

    Add the orange peels and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the peels are translucent. I let these simmer for one hour.



    Remove peels and place on a rack to dry for several hours.



    I let these set for a day and a half, then rolled them in white sugar.

    Xmas Dinner Prep: Creme Brulee

    Classic Creme Brulee Recipe
    (this recipe makes 6 portions, we doubled this and sent some with family)
    8 egg yolks
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    1/4 cup natural sugar for caramelizing



    Separate egg yolks



    Mix egg yolks and sugar until sugar is dissolved

    Mix in rest of ingredients and pour through a fine sieve.



    Prepare baking dish by placing paper towel on the bottom. This keeps the rammekins from sliding. Evenly fill rammekins with creme brulee mix.



    Place in pan, place pan in oven and fill 1/2 way up rammekins with warm water.



    Bake at 300 F for 40-50 minutes or until they are set.



    Take out of pan and set aside to cool. After they cool, place in fridge for at least 2 hours.

    IMGreat, do you find that roasting naked cloves gives you a different texture with the roasted garlic?

    Edit: As opposed to keeping the cloves within the head of garlic, I mean.

    good catch buttercup!

    The garlic can become dry and tough if not tended to. I kept this garlic on it's own piece of foil and pulled them when they were just starting to turn brown and were fork tender. This allowed room to shake the brussel sprouts so they would brown evenly.

    I could eat roasted garlic like peanuts.... yummm!

    I love roasted garlic, it's one of my favorite things! I roast it until it's buttery and soft.
