    And I thought I’d overcooked my candied orange peels this year! (I almost always do.) Sorry for your loss. :-)

    I have an idea. Soak in brandy to reconstitute into smoked/drunk peels. How Vashon?

    I’m imagining the smell of burnt orange peels and it isn’t pretty.
    I often do the same thing with the broiler.

    Don’t throw out that burnt orange peel. It might be salvageable. I made burnt orange caramels. See it here http://allourfingersinthepie.blogspot.com/2009/12/burnt-orange-pecan-caramelsperfect-for.html

    Burnt orange is a wonderful flavour. You could add it to pork recipes or osso bucco. That is if it isn’t really burned!
