ORANGE PEEL PICKLE

Here it is Orange season, a citrus fruit, full of vitamin C. I always feel sorry while throwing orange peels. Long back I had tried to make Juice out of orange peels, and once I tried making marmalade. But most of the times I simply throw it away. Today I tried it's pickle and it came out well. It is spicy, a bit sour, a little bitter and of course with its little orange flavor. 
The recipe goes like this......
