Method

  • Combine orange rind, 100ml orange juice, olive oil, 500ml water and 1 tsp salt in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Add flour, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon until dough is smooth (2-3 minutes), then transfer to a piping bag with a 1cm-fluted nozzle.
