Waste not want not. My kids go through 'snowman noses' (satsumas) like there is no tomorrow at this time of year! If your household is the same, store up your peel and make firelighters and fruity sprinkles!
Keep larger pieces of citrus peel. Dried on a rack on top of the range or in the simmering oven, they make wonderful natural fire lighters. Or crumbled up satsuma peel washed then dried (in the same way), adds a taste to apple chutney, cakes etc. Keep it in a paper bag in dry place.🍊🔥
Send your fruit storing, drying, and decorating photos to me at email@example.com
Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
