Ten organic lemons or oranges;
In order to make this recipe you’ll only need the peel, so don’t waste the fruit itself. Instead, make fresh juice.
Blend the peels, without adding any water.
Place the blended peel in a glass dish and cook it in the oven on low heat. Stir the peel every once in a while to keep it from burning.
Best way to achieve this is by leaving the oven door open slightly so you are able to control the cooking process.
When the peel is dry and dehydrated, take the dish out of the oven and let it cool.
Blend the orange peels once again until they’ve turned into flour.
Now strain the flour and store it in a glass jar. You can keep it in the fridge in order to make sure that it lasts longer.
You can use it in juices, smoothies, teas, and soups.
Try to limit your ingestion of this flour to 1 to 3 teaspoons a day.
Not only is it great for your health, but it also makes all the food taste great.
