Christmas Citrus

This week our Sunday was a bit busier than last!

A batch of grapefruit marmalade was made for the stockings, although I'm a bit worried that it didn't jell. If that's the case, I'll be looking for some creative uses for grapefruit syrup ~ perhaps over vanilla ice cream? I remember having this same worry in the past, and things have always worked out. Fingers are crossed.

After the marmalade it was on to candied rinds, or rather the gummy worm candies according to Calder ::
So far I've made some lemon and grapefruit rinds. This was my first time making the lemon rinds, and now there's no going back, they are the tastiest gummy worms ever. I use Martha's fool-proof recipe, and they turn out perfect every time.

Ca$h was busy too, rather than sleeping the day away, he stole the cat's seat by the window, and did a bit of squirrel watching...

We cracked open our little jar of grapefruity goodness this week! How ironic that it shows up here. The girls love it so much Mady was trying to eat it like a doggy. *sigh* (and I can't even brag that she's house trained!)

All those treats look so yummy! We better have a Christmas in July when I get back. I can't believe Cash was able to get up on the stool without knocking it over. He must have grown into his puppy paws since I've been away.
