5 Ways to Enjoy Citrus Rind
Five ways to enjoy citrus rind.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.
