Back on the Bark



Last year at this time, I was waiting (not so patiently) for Colin to make his debut. And I was also making obscene amounts of peppermint bark to pass the time.

After making about twenty or so batches, I feel that I can confidently say that I know peppermint bark.

I understand the subtleties that separate a great batch from a total mess. I know that one has to be mindful of thickness, temperature, and that oh-so-potent peppermint extract.

So I am at it again this year (just the peppermint bark, not the birthing).

We've only made three batches so far. But we have big plans. This stuff is good.
