@MALUSE I never thought if that. I guess if rain washed it off we would not read in woman's magazines that I read with some saying that just need washing off and some had one needs to wash with a mild soap. I have read that in the past.

A couple of the citrus rinds like a lemon, lime or even orange can be used in baking to add the 'zest' of flavor it would call for as an added delicious ingredient; however as healing aids due to the various medicinal properties found in any of the vegetable or fruit peels is quite remarkable. Thanks for sharing and oh by the way: potato skin is especially great for withdrawing spider venom from bites . . .

I recently saw a cookshow on TV where the chef was sharing ways to use peels and other odd and ends in your refrigerator. It was quite a novel experience. I think I might try potato peel as fries. I use the potato with the jackets, cucumbers and off course edible fruits with the skin . although I was warned to 'peel' apples because the were waxed for sale.
