Not me, but I have been known to eat orange peels. The seeds too.

While candied citrus peel uses the pith, and a lot of sugar, for seasoning you only use the peel, not the bitter white pith.

I dehydrate orange, lemon & lime peels rock hard. Once done, crush & use a food processor to grind to small pepper flake sized powder.

I use the citrus powder to make citrus flavor seasoning salt (very low salt content).

Yes, I have a 1/2 gallon mason jar loaded with orange zest all dried and powdered.

Nobody wants it.

I have been a vendor in Farmer's Markets since 2007. We produce a wide selection of herbs. The orange zest does not move.

Bunkerbuster offered a clue.

Create a season blend that incorporates it. Or offer a tea or potpourri blend that includes it.

Thought I would revist this for any newbies. She ended up doing this and keeps a spice shaker of it in the cupboard. It gets used a lot on poultry and in place of lemon zest in a lot of her recipes.

Our son uses it in his homemade BBQ sauces. We've found it useful to have around.

Wifey keeps our orange peels in a quart mason jars filled with white vinegar. She sprays it on or around her outdoor plants to keep bugs off. I also keep a spray bottle in the shop and spray mist around when im out there to keep the mosquitoes away.

My mom will take the peel and soak it in vinegar for a week or two, and then uses that as a citrus scented cleaner.

Speaking of orange spray, I buy the Zep Orange Degreaser from Home Depot as my #1 bug spray.

Down on the Gulf Coast we get some seriously huge flying cockroaches. As big as a man's thumb in both length and width.

The womenfolk simply cannot deal with them. Most young men here learn early in life about the cockroach scream. Each woman has her own, but it isn't her usual scream. It's her Hollywood movie scream. The young boy rushes to defend his womenfolk and sees her standing on as safe a perch as she can find. She points and gives the young boy the "look". It says not to come back except with your shield or on it. If the roach kills you for some reason your heroism shall be remembered and cherished. LOL. You think I lie, but it is true. No male who lives with women can avoid this duty here. Sack up, boy. You can walk upright now so you know your duty.

Anyway, the Zep Orange Degreaser kills bugs on contact if you have good aim with the sprayer. The biggest of roach might need a minute of crazy run time first, but it gets even them too.

The best part is that as a cleaning spray any overspray is part of cleanup. Once wiped up any residue is nontoxic to people and pets. Some of those insect sprays are kind of hazardous. I think that flying insect spray is nerve gas. Go with the polite cleaning spray instead that has a nice orange aroma.
