Waste Not Want Not - Citrus Spread #Vegetarian

Although my husband and I usually eat vegetarian shading into vegan, we don't identify with those food restrictions. We like carnitas at Mexican restaurants, so I decided to make carnitas in my Instant Pot.

One of the things the instructions say to do is squeeze the juice from two oranges and two limes. I didn't squeeze them; I reamed them out on a juicer which caught the pulp.

Naturally, I saved the pulp, which is where the title of this post comes in.

I took the pulp, mixed in some softened cream cheese, and added sugar to taste.

We spread the result on crackers and went Mmmmmmm!
I'm posting the recipe for the carnitas on my blog today.
