in_place_editor_field and a helper?

Hi, I'm running into a problem when I try to do in place editing with the simple_format helper. What the helper does is take form input and turn carriage returns into separate list elements (so when a person fills out a form and hits enter, each line is it's own list item). Unfortunately, when I try to do in_place_editor_field with the data that has the line breaks, it completely ignores them, instead of putting the elements back on their own line.

Is there a way to combine in_place_editor_field and a simple_format helper?

Here's a snippet from the view as an illustration of the problem:

<%= in_place_editor_field :recipe, :ingredients %>


<%= simple_format(@recipe.ingredients) %>

= ??

I also would really appreciate seeing how some of you have resolved the problem. I can't find anywhere any information about how to solve it, I can read through all of the code available but most of it is Javascript. It confuses me because nowhere does there seem to be the code that generates the HTML.
