Have you wondered what to do with your orange peels since they don't decompose very well? If you don't want to throw them away but also don't want to toss them in with your compost, consider dehydrating them and turning them into a savory tea. Add a dab of honey to sweeten this zesty morning beverage.
Ingredients (to make approximately 1 quart):
2 C. dried orange peels (I chopped orange peels into small cubes and threw them in the dehydrator)
1 C. Tbsp dried green tea leaves
