So our 12th Night this year is an Elizabethan theme. We have a number of
people coming in from out of town (and staying with us) and I thought I'd
be nice and provide lunch for all of us instead of relying on the site
lunch or going out. And, being me, ideally I would like it to be
documentable. So I am going to make candied lemon and orange peels (and a
bunch of other stuff, and an A&S entry).
My questions (after perusing carefully the relevant bits of the
Flori-thingy) are: can one use Clementines (yes, I know they aren't
period) or is the peel too thin? I was thinking that I might experiment
with making preserved oranges with them. Also, can one do the same thing
with lemons successfully?
