you seem to have many kitchen fairy godmothers watching over you - I tend to agree with you that we don't need so much sweetness - though I am curious to know if you eat the candied peel by itself or otherwise

another outspoken female

A wonderful labour of love. And step 2 - what are you going to do with the candied peel?

Denise | Chez Danisse

I like a little sweet, but not too much. What is happening up here in this photograph? It's lovely. Peaches? And? This is clearly not a bowl of grapefruit.

Here we go... No need to answer the above. Found on Flicker.

Amanda

An early autumn day making candied grapefruit peel, sipping tea, and reading Jane Grigson? Buddy, you know how to live. I'm with you on the bittersweet thing.

Mariana

You're still in the black and white mode I see. Lovely shot.

Elizabeth

I am so glad someone agrees with me about Stephanie loving sweet! I feel bad for altering her recipes but I took out two-thirds the amount of sugar in her banana cake and it was still sweeter than I like.

Amanda

Just quoted you in my April harvest calendar x

delicious b&w photo!

Lucy

will report back when the peel's had it's 3-day drying off period.

denise: yes. nectarines...which were not as glorious this year as i'd have liked. next year, i hope things improve.

mariana: addicted to it, i think.

elizabeth: i'm glad you agree - thing is, stephanie's so wonderful, so well-loved here, that it felt brave saying it out loud!

amanda: thank you. so very, very much, friend. xxx

Lower the sweetness, but with delicate flavours dont you think they are lost a little sometimes?

Sally - My Custard Pie

Sounds like the perfect morning to me. I blame the US trend of achingly sweet things permeating our collective tastebuds. I personally like sharp!

This sounds like an ideal labor of love, it's a delicious and very appealing photo!
