Orange Peel Pieces
Orange Peel Pieces contains the zest of the Orange. The main difference between the Orange Pieces and the smaller granules or zest is that the pieces are larger than the zest. We use this coarse peel pieces for tea flavoring. It is also use in marinades that require an orange citrus flavor. The cultivation of citrus has a history of at least 2000 years, and the fruit was used long before then. Oranges originated in India and China; the Greeks, when introduced to Oranges, prized them for both their culinary and medical properties.
Besides used in teas, the dried Orange Pieces are used in desserts, mulled drinks, added to sugar and used in cooking meat or fish stew. A little Orange Peel mixed in with cheese sauces lightens the dish.
We also have many friends who use it for making beer, mead, grog and other traditional brews and spirits. It adds an orangy, citrusy touch found in many citrus-based beers,
