Dried Orange Peel

These delicious-smelling orange peels were s(h)aved from a bunch of oranges hanging around the apartment using a vegetable peeler. I dried them in a pan on the lowest setting until they felt dry to the touch. As they toasted their aroma deepened. After they cooled, they got stored in a jar... The aroma matures a lot at this stage. I'm not sure what to do with them yet, but every so often I open the jar and smell their awesomeness.

Also, I think they'd be good with duck, or in marmalade.

I can smell them too and am delighted by your blog, it's fragrant and humble, lovely and delightful and I know you enough to know I have said too much so will leave it with merci and that I look forward to more.
