I have been putting a fresh orange into my morning shake, along with my home brewed kombucha tea, a scoop of spirulina, fresh local bee pollen, chia seed & maca.
I recently found recipes to make citrus household cleaner and orange peel candy!
You can use any kind of citrus peels, cover the peels in white vinegar and letting it sit in a jar in a a window for 2 weeks, letting the peels break down. Afterward, simply drain, dilute by half with water if desired and use in a spray bottle.
It smells terrific!
Orange peel candy~ Now this is the cat’s meow!
It appears that I have turned my friends into orange peel candy addicts, so I have made up another batch to share!
Cut washed peels into 1/4″ strips
Boil 20 minutes
Bring to boil 4 parts white sugar to 1 part water in large saucepan.
Stir to dissolve sugar.
Do not over crowd the pan, making sure that all of the strips become coated in the syrup.
I dusted half with white death (white granulated sugar) and the other with coconut sugar which gives it a lovely rich flavour.
One batch I added a little cinnamon to the white sugar for variety.
Place sugar coated strips on wire cooling racks and let dry overnight.
They will become rigid once cooled.
Try not to eat all at once!
