According to a 1951 report from the University of Florida “In the 1949-50 season, when a total of 48 million boxes of oranges and grapefruit were processed, two million tons of refuse remained to be disposed of by the citrus by-product industry.” the report went on to say “The rapidly growing Florida cattle industry utilizes large tonnages of two primary by-products, dried citrus pulp and citrus molasses, as stock feeds”

    On a kindergarten field trip in 1960 we visited to a dairy (probably Skinner’s) and the powerful smell of oranges in their feed left an indelible memory. It smelled so delicious I wanted to eat it myself!

    What are you talking about. I always eat the pulp after I’ve eaten the orange. It’s not a bad taste and probably has some nutrient value for you. The day is coming when the peeling can be turned into something tasteful and nutrient. If we are to survive as an independent constitutional republic, we need to think of innovative ways to become more tarkurky as a nation. If one doesn’t know what “tarkurky” means, they need to look it up.
