@CalamityJane,
I make my own candied orange peel, easy peasy and it makes the house smell good, in my opinion. But, it's another task..

Summarizing and old Joy of Cooking recipe -

- peel grapefruit, oranges, lemons or limes to get 2 cups of citrus peel (try not to scrape up very much pulp as that adds to bitterness)
- cover it with 1 1.2 cup cold water

Bring slowly to boiling point. Simmer 10 minutes or longer, drain. Re[eat 3 to 5 times in all, draining well each time.

For each cup of peel make a syrup of 1.4 cup of water, 1/2 cup of sugar
Add peel and boil until all syrup is absorbed and the peel is translucent. Roll peel in powdered sugar, spread on racks to dry. May be chocolate coated..


I do this about once a year and freeze the peel in baggies. I love it as candy..

@CalamityJane,
I love them - with or without the chocolate. They're a softer version of a brittle. Nuts, sweets, a bit of salt. I don't think you can beat the combination.

.. which makes me think of wonderful salted caramels a Taunton friend used to make and sell <thud> private moment perfection

I'm baking a pumpkin pie with a gluten-free pie crust made from a mix. I pre-baked the crust and I have to say it smells weird. I probably should have added more water that the package said because I wasn't able to roll it out. I ended up patting it into the pan. I'm sure Ian will eat it without complaint.

@Swimpy,
Swimpy, you always can have a back-up plan..uh pumpkin pie with a regular crust.
I am making the florentines this afternoon (I have such cravings for it now) as well as a chocolate cake.

@Swimpy,
Pumpkin pie works well with no crust... or is it Pumpkin custard.

Either way, put a little of the pie filling in a glass pie dish with no crust. Your gluten free family members will thank you.

It looks like I gave away my cookbook once it turned out my son was not gluten intolerant but I remember making appetizers from thinly sliced almonds and parmesan cheese. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and make small (maybe 1 to 1 1/2 inch across) piles of almonds. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake in 350 oven just until parmesan melts and glues toasted almonds together.

You can make muffins too substituting the flour with ground nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts) and the milk with applesauce and/or banana. They don't get very tall but they're delicious. I remember buying gluten free baking soda and baking powder.

@ebrown p,
Yep, I always made pumpkin custard if there was leftover pie filling. It's delicious.

If my life was gluten-free I'd seriously consider suicide. as to pumpkin pie, yes americans have some odd traditions and pumpkin pie is just one of them.

Just listening in -- my mother-in-law also recently decided she was gluten-intolerant and I'm looking for recipes for stuff to cook for her while she's here but also resources to send her. Great stuff here, thanks everyone!

I'm planning to make some brittle on one of the next couple of weekends. Sugar/salt/nuts. Yup, I'll like it.
