5 Ways to Enjoy Citrus Rind
Got extra citrus rind? You don't have to discard them just yet!
Don’t just discard the skin of oranges and lemons! Chef Gino Gonzalez of Café Ysabel suggests five ways to enjoy their flavor and aroma:
1 Homemade vinaigrette
Make some lemon or orange vinaigrette for your next salad. Mix some juice and zest with balsamic vinegar and whisk it into your oil and herbs of choice.
2 Fruity flan
Throw it into any custard recipe (like leche flan or panna cotta) and you’ve got an instant fruity dessert.
3 It takes stew
Making beef stew? Place some orange rind in the pot three to five minutes before it fully cooks for a punchier finish.
4 Amazing glaze
Zest is also lovely with glazed spareribs. Try using each fruit alone or combine both to flavor the glaze or top the ribs.
5 Luscious dips
Put a twist to garlic mayonnaise by squirting some lemon juice and zest.
