      These had a nice citrus-spice flavor. The cayenne is just enough to warm your mouth. I used tangerine zest (what I had on hand)and a little less cloves.It gave the house a wonderful aroma and it took all of my will power to keep some for an asian inspired salad the next day.

      These were GREAT and AROMATIC! I made a half recipe. Mine were a little burned at 20 minutes. I did stir them 3 times but perhaps I needed to stir them more than that? They still tasted good. Like cookiedog said, they have just enough heat to warm your mouth. The spice mix is very nice. They are appropriately named because the orange flavor stands out the most. Made for Photo tag.
