But even if and when we get a compost bin up and running, I can only imagine I will continue to look for and find new and different ways to use peels and other food products. Why? Because frankly, if I can use something I already have to do a job, I would rather NOT go out and buy something new.
My kids LOVE oranges. We usually go through a couple dozen a week, so we get a lot of peels around. I have been using them to make cleaners lately, but some of these ideas are worthy of a try or two. I LOVE the idea of using them as a fire starter... I wonder if they would work dried?
My next big purchase will be a dehydrator, at which point I'll start powdering my peels for incense - which I suppose you could add to this list as number 11!
