Have you preserved oranges and limes? Do you have to use the entire fruit or can you just use the skins? What a great idea to always have lemon zest flavor around! Yesterday, I made an orange-scented apple raisin crisp, and the fragrance was divine!
I have never done oranges. Limes yes, you can do them the same way. I use the entire fruit as part of the lemon flavor comes from the juice. You could use a few
juiced lemons skins after you have enough liquid in the jar.
BTW very important to wash the fruit, the jar and your hands before beginning. Otherwise you can end up with mold.
