I’m pretty handy in the kitchen, but grand failures do occur, especially when I add a heaping spoonful of distraction to the recipe. So let my burnt rock hard candied orange peels be a lesson. When the phone rings, turn off the burner.
My new doorstop: hardened block of candied orange peel in a pan.
And I thought I’d overcooked my candied orange peels this year! (I almost always do.) Sorry for your loss. 🙂
I have an idea. Soak in brandy to reconstitute into smoked/drunk peels. How Vashon?
I’m imagining the smell of burnt orange peels and it isn’t pretty.
I often do the same thing with the broiler.
Hahahaha…I’ve had to learn that lesson the hard way…my problem is I am so easily distracted 🙂
Don’t throw out that burnt orange peel. It might be salvageable. I made burnt orange caramels. See it here http://allourfingersinthepie.blogspot.com/2009/12/burnt-orange-pecan-caramelsperfect-for.html
Burnt orange is a wonderful flavour. You could add it to pork recipes or osso bucco. That is if it isn’t really burned!
I seem to remember something happening with tomato sauce not long ago. Hmmmm…
Dear Tom, they’re very pretty.:)) These things can be happened in my kitchen, too.
These days I’m thinking to make candied orange peels, Which recipe You tried.
Oh Tom… what’s the condition of the pan :-/
Eileen: The pan is still coated with a black sugar glass, argh! I now have it full of water and simmering gently.
Sare: I do have a recipe http://www.tallcloverfarm.com/209/orange-you-glad-you-made-these
Susan: uh oh, good memory — ketchup craziness…http://www.tallcloverfarm.com/625/how-not-to-make-ketchup
Oops! What a bummer! When I first saw the picture I thought it was some kind of beef jerky.
Jan saves the day!!!
at least it didn’t explode all over the kitchen like your nuclear ketchup recipe.
wow, Sarah has great ideas!
Too bad, too bad,…but it happens to all of us! 🙂
