[Sca-cooks] Looking for Recipes for Seville Orange Peel

It is my understanding that the orange referred to in nearly all 
medieval Islamic cookbooks -- from Baghdad to al-Andalus -- is the 
bitter or Seville orange. If I recall correctly (I don't have the books 
with me right now), it's usually the pulp or the juice the want, so the 
pel alone might not be usable in the recipes. Still, you may want to 
consult one of the several collections:

Medieval Cuisine of the Islamic World (Zaouali)
Medieval Islamic Cookery (Perry, Rodinson, et al.)
Annals of the Caliphs' Kitchens (Nasrallah)
Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook (Perry)
