How to dry citrus peel
The next time you're eating an orange, instead of throwing away the peel, why not dry it and use it in recipes or potpourri? It's easy to do!
It's best to use organic citrus, or at least wash it well.
Cut the fruit into large sections, removing the flesh. Scrape as much of the white pith off as you can. (A serrated grapefruit spoon works well here.) Then slice the peel into long thin strips. Place the strips in a warm, dry spot for a few days. When they're crisp and breakable, they're ready! Store in a dark, dry tin.
