Orange rind used in cooking is not the same thing as the peel. The zest should only contain the outer part of the fruit leaving behind the white pith. The peel contain the rind as well as the entire pith. The pith should not be used to cook with because it is bitter and will cover up the taste of the orange skins oils.
