With gardening holding a special place in my heart, the concept of “zero waste” really resonates with me. Check out my previous vegetable broth recipe that I made with kitchen scraps and the revival of #scallionstories! Now more than ever, I think it’s critical to be resourceful and sustainable.
I recently saved some orange peels in an airtight container in the fridge and wanted to make these treats- chocolate dipped fruit are some of my favorite, relatively healthy snacks. Utilizing what would otherwise be tossed in the trash or used as compost is a neat idea!
Feel free to simply make the candied orange peel and omit the chocolate step. Or go one step further and roll the peels in coarse sugar for a snappier texture. Recipe with pictures below!
