Cooking Tip: Orange zest is the colorful part of the orange peel. Avoid the bitter white part or pith underneath. To grate, cover a four-sided box grater with plastic wrap and pull the orange down the side of the grater. Or use one of the new microplane zester-graters available in cookware stores.
Cooking Tip: For added flavor, toast the almonds. Place in a conventional or toaster oven at 350 F until fragrant and toasted, 5-7 minutes, stirring two or three times. Watch them carefully since they can go from nicely toasted to burned very quickly.
