Mandarin Tea Light

Mandarin tea light is an easy decoration which can be made in few minutes. It will look nice on a diner table or as a mood light when decorating party space.

Slice the peel horizontally at the widest part of the mandarin. Then gently separate two halves of skin and remove the fruit. While doing this, pay attentions to leave the center pith attached to one half of the mandarin as the pith will act as a wick.
