How to Make Your Own Orange Peel Powder

  1. Peel a couple of organic oranges. Use a sharp knife for this and try to get only the orange, most outer layer of the peel, with no white part (as much as possible, of course).
  2. Spread the pieces of the peel in a single layer on a tray and protect them from dirt and dust by covering them with a thin cloth.
  3. It will take 2 – 5 days for the orange peel to dry, depending on the temperature it is exposed to. To get them dry in 2 – 3 days, place the tray under the sun (during summer) or near an open oven (during winter).
  4. Once your peel is completely dry, put it into a blender. Make sure you don’t touch it with wet hands and that your blender is completely dry. Simply grind the pieces of dry peel until you get a fine powder.
  5. Store your orange peel powder in a clean, dry, airtight glass container and keep it in a dry, cold place. Stored like this, your orange peel powder should be good for use for several months.
