I found this on The Kitchn blog today and thought it sounded interesting so I whipped some up! Sprinkle some in your french toast or muffin batter.. Top on ice cream or oatmeal or yogurt..use in rubs for chicken or ribs... The list goes on and on.

If you don't like the taste of bitter orange rinds at all this recipe may not be for you.. It is a little bitter but the possibilities of use are endless!

How to Make Mandarin Orange Dust

Step-by-Step

  1. preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or silpat.
  3. Using a mandolin or very sharp knife slice the oranges as thin as possible. You should get around ten slices per orange.
  4. Spread the orange slices out in a single layer on the lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 200 degrees for 2 to 3 hours depending on how thin your oranges were cut. Don't let them get too brown or they will taste burnt. They should be brittle when done but not burnt.
  6. When the oranges are done break them up and grind them in a spice grinder along with the sugar and salt (if using).
  7. Store in an airtight container.
