Today I took my dried orange peels and made them into an edible powder. They had been hanging for 3 weeks and seem completely dry:
I threw them in my magic bullet and ground them up a bit at a time until there were no large pieces.
I'm storing the grounds in an old empty Vitamin C container as it is a darkened plastic. Any herbal remedies you make with fresh herbs should be kept in darkened glass so that it doesn't go rancid. Seeing as I'm feeling a cold coming on, it's perfect timing for me to take some of this!
