5 Ways to Enjoy Citrus Rind

Got extra citrus rind? You don't have to discard them just yet!

September 03, 2010 | by Yummy

 

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.
