Mandarin oranges come with many names – satsumas, clementines, and tangerines to name a few. What I love most about mandarin oranges is sweet flavor and their skin is very tender. They’re an excellent source of vitamins A and C and fiber. This is a unique pickle, tastes tangy, made out of orange peel. It is also rich in vitamin c .Orange Peel pickle is a very tasty and healthy pickle. This aids in digestion and is good for an upset stomach when consumed with curd rice.
