Orange Zest Know Your Herbs and Spices

Orange Zest adds a brightness to any dish where you would use other citrus peel like lemon or lime.

Orange oil is concentrated in the outer peel. A little orange peel goes a long way so use it sparingly.

Avoid using any of the white pulp directly under the skin. This pulp will add a bit of bitterness to your dish.

Orange peel can be frozen and grated as needed.

Orange zest is usually added to marmalade to balance the flavor.

 

Orange zest pairs well with shrimp and chicken. Try these recipes for a bit of zest in your dinner!

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
