The ultimate time saver when it comes to baking, dried Orange Peel is just adds so much flavor. Our Orange Peel is made from the outer peel, and not the pith (or the white part of the rind). The zest is the part of the orange that contains the highest amount of oil which is why it is used in baking. The peel is then minced and dried which captures all of the highly fragrant and potent citrus oils. 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.
