I eat orange peel in marmalade
Like Eth said, he eats t and yes it is safe.. be sure if you do partake you wash the fruit well as the skins may have residual pesticides.Orane peel or zest as it is referred to is deliscous added to recipes, sauces cookies... etc.... Its good to use fresh but nice to have some grated orange zest drie and stored in an air tight container so as to have it on hand.
Citrus fruits are often treated by spraying with dipenyl to delay ripening in transit and as a fungistat. As Karen says, wash them before making marmalade or it's [xx(]
