Orange Zest/Grated Orange Peel - Certified Organic


The ultimate time saver when it comes to baking, our dried Orange peel is just as flavorful as freshly grated oranges. Our top quality granulated Orange Zest is made from the outer peel, and not the pith (or the white part of the rind). The orange peel is then minced and dried which captures all of the essential oils. The zest is the part of the orange that contains the highest amount of oil which is why it is used in baking.

While Orange Zest was most frequently called for in baking recipes, we are now finding it appearing more often in recipes such as marinades, vegetables, chicken, dressings, seafood and rice.

High quality orange peel, along with lemon zest and lime zest, are prized by brew masters when making summer ales and other types of beer.

Orange peel is also used in many do-it-yourself household projects and can even be added to tea or used in homemade potpourri.

Orange is nicely complimented by mint, bay leaves, parsley, thyme, sage and rosemary.

Our Orange Zest comes from oranges that are grown in the United States.

Our Orange Zest possesses a highly fragrant and potent citrus flavor.

Because the oil content in our Orange Zest is so high, we recommend that you store your Orange Zest in jars.

To rehydrate, add three parts water to one part peel and let stand for about 15 minutes. When using in its dehydrated form, use 1/3 of the amount of fresh orange peel that the recipe calls for.
