Today I finished a few day's worth of preparing candied pineapple, cherries, mandarin orange segments (it worked!), cranberries, ginger, orange peels,dried bananas (those are just for porridge toppings), and apple slices. I have a large Buddha's hand citron waiting to be candied, but otherwise I'm ready for the puddings and Christmas cake. It wouldn't be such a terribly big deal if I didn't do all the fruit myself, but I do, and it is. I'm going to soak in a warm bath until I shrivel up like a prune. I hope no one tries to stick me in a pudding.
Now, to get the Barmbracks baked for next week!
