Absolutely delicious bread - I am planning to make this for Christmas this year! Do not think this is cumbersome at all, in fact it's quite simple to make and perfect for a lazy sunday morning. I made the New England version, but will be watching for the peel at the market, as I'd love to try the Celtic version. I am sending both loaves in to DH's work this morning, so unfortunately, no pictures this time. Thanks, Annacia! Made for PRMR Tag.

Please don't be alarmed by the seemingly never ending list of instructions,it's nowhere near as bad it looks.Besides,the results are well worth any effort (not that I would class this as effort!!). I went for the Celtic version,being from the UK,and made mine into two free form loaves,that were simply enormous,and simply delicious!! The children are loving it too (my 2 year old keeps pointing to it and shouting 'share share' at me!!). Thanks Annacia for a wonderful recipe.Made for PhotoTag.

Am definitely not used to tagging or making recipes with this many steps or this much time in the preparation, but when it comes to you, Annacia, AND to a holiday bread, I'm willing to make an exception! I did the New England version this time around, but definitely want to try the Celtic one when I can get my hands on (or I COULD make) the citrus peel! I also made it free-form as one large loaf & used a whole grain flour! Was extremely happy with the results ~ BEAUTIFUL LOAVES, & GREAT TASTE! I definitely will be making this again, at least several times during the winter holidays! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game]
