Happy Lunar New Year!

With mandarin oranges being one of the core items that you bring along for house visiting, I’m sure you’d have at least a pair of oranges in your house.

Other than eating it, how about making the full use of this amazing fruit by saving the peels? It’s environmentally and pocket ($) friendly. FYI, these works well for any citrus peels :)

Here’s what you can do with your peels:

1. Make it with tea


You could either dry it like how the video does, or just pour hot water on freshly peeled skin

2. Use it as a air freshener

Boil the peels in hot water to help freshen the air in the kitchen and pour it into a spritz.

3. Make candies

4. Put it into green or red bean soup

Add zest to your dessert with these mandarin peels! …
