Fuel Your Fire with Dried Citrus Peels

How convenient that citrus is a winter fruit! Their peels, when dried, make great kindling for your fire.

Dried citrus peels make fantastic kindling. When starting a fire or rekindling a dying flame, a handful of dried citrus peels will prove remarkably flammable.

I speculate that the concentrated oils found in the peels may have something to do with the intense display of flame and heat they spawn.
