Orange & Garlic Citrus Paste

I mentioned all the ways I used this paste throughout the week up in the main post. Have fun and experiment! Be sure to peel all the pith from the peels. It’s intricate work, but worth it.


  • 1 1/2 cups / 6 1/2 oz / 185g orange peel (from ~10 oranges)
  • 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 2/3 cup / 100g peeled garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Pulse into a paste, scraping down the sides of the blender once or twice to get all the good bits mixed in. Refrigerate, and freeze any paste you won’t use within the week.
