One of my experiments, and at the same time my first post in the Foodie Bee Hive.
We eat a lot of organic oranges, and as I hate throwing out things that might be of use, I cut off the outer layer of the peel and put it in rapeseed oil. The oil tastes bitter and aromatic and very orangey. I have been wondering what it should be used for. You can probably use it in cakes, e.g. cookies, and the oiled peels themselves must be usable frying as a spice (I've seen Jamie Oliver use mandarin peel with fried potatoes). I have poured most of the oil in a jar so it doesn't become rancid, and then I have greased all our wooden utensils with orange oil. In particular the kitchen utensils become quite dull and etched by the dishwasher so they will benefit from it.
Any suggestions as to what I can use it for will be welcome
