Bitter Orange Peel
Bitter Orange Peel (Citrus aurantium)
What do you call the sloughed off skin of a sunburned orange who holds a grudge? Bitter orange peel, of course! While this joke may be considered tasteless in the world of herbal humor, bitter orange peel is one thing that is NOT tasteless. This fruity roughage has so many uses and benefits that if it had its own tagline it would be, ‘Bitter Orange Peel: Orange You Glad It Won’t Lose Its Appeal?’
