Introduction: Oranges and Fire

About: I'm a 13 year lad who likes farming and carriage driving. I enjoy projects of any kind and I have a love for engineering and designing. I also do a lot of modelling and am a musician.

These are two really cool tricks you can do with orange peel and a flame. I just want to say, I shall not be held responsible for damaged property or person!

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!

    All you Americans seem to do is pick on people's weak spots such as their spelling mistakes! It's the English who are good at grammar not fat Americans who pick on little people who can't spell! Pick on some one your own size!!
