Orange Peel, organic

Weight: 30

A surplus product with a sublime taste

Mill&Mortar organic orange granules are actually a residual product from the production of dried orange slices. The end pieces and the irregular slices from the oranges in this production process are difficult to use. But by drying and granulating them - voilà - we have a new spice! It feels great to know that a residual product can be transformed into an extremely tasteful, beautiful, usable product. It goes without saying that we are not the first in the world to think of drying an orange. But by drying the zest of the fruit together with the flesh, we avoid the excessive bitterness that such granules often have. In our case, we infuse the fresh taste of orange juice into the granules. Unlike dried lemon zest (which often loses its colour), our orange granules retains their beautiful orange colour, making them perfect for decorating the likes of cakes and desserts.

What do you use it for?

Fresh orange is wonderful for sweet recipes, especially when combined with chocolate. Use it as a 100% natural flavour on a chocolate muffin, in a fruit salad or in a mousse. But orange zest can also add flavour to savoury dishes. Try orange zest in an oil-and-vinegar salad dressing or mix the it with herbs for an oven-baked fish dish. The granules can also be used in cocktails: e.g. on the foam of an Espresso Martini or on the edge of the glass for an Old Fashioned.

Mill&Mortar aims to tell the diverse stories of the world of spices. They want to provoke people to prepare their own food with quality products. They choose their spices according to the 'Product of Origin' principle, which means:

- Spices from this year's harvest that look, smell and taste as they did when they were harvested.

- Spices with origin. They know when and where they were grown and harvested. They also know that the way they are raised does not harm people, animals or ecosystems.

- Unique products that tell the story of the people who worked for that product.

Mill&Mortar work with spices from all over the world. They offer the best quality products that are organic, fair trade, clean label, hand picked, hand sorted and hand packed.
