Our Diced Orange Peel is the grated zest of the citrus orange fruit, perfect for storing and easy use in the kitchen. The zest of orange is often added to accent flavors of food and beverages, with the acidic and floral essence pairing perfectly with contrastingly rich and sweet ingredients. These muted orange pieces still pack their fragrant oils that add a rich and rounded flavor to any tea or baked good.
Native to South Asia, the sweet orange tree was not brought to Europe until the 15th century. It is produced on a wide scale in Brazil, the United States and India. Its fruit is widely used to make juice, but its grated outer peel contains vast amounts of flavoring and essential oil that is perfect for flavoring food and drink.
Our Diced Orange Peel pairs with chocolate for a classic combination that comes together beautifully in this lightly sweet bread. Lightly spiced and not too sweet Diced Orange Peel comes through clean and aromatic in this quick bread recipe.
