How to dry orange peel
#zerowaste style: don’t throw orange peel away. Better Keep and dry it.
Peel your orange and place peel on a kitchen towel.
Place the kitchen towel in a warm place, like near a heater. The peel will dry immediately.
If necessary, break the pieces of dried peel to make them smaller. Store in a jar in a dry place.
