Step 1: Test One!
Peel an orange but keep the orange peel. Heat the peel over the flame. Now you must crush the peel with the orange side pointing toward the flame and enjoy the display!
Step 2: Test 2
If you burn the edges of the peel over the flame you'll get different display. It takes a few seconds to get started so be patient.
Step 3: Flower Power
You can do the experiment with any critic fruit! The way it works is the realising of flammable oils into the flame. I'm still abscessed with it!
