9oz jar (Diced). 12oz jar (Granulated) temporarily out of stock.


Choose Diced or Granulated

Dried orange peel is an easy to use, shelf stable alternative to fresh orange peel.  It can be used in baked goods and sauces, steeped in liquids to impart flavor (mulling spices, herbal teas & tea blends, etc), or added to spice blends. Two forms are available – diced & granulated.

Granulated Orange Peel has been ground into granules.  While it can be rehydrated in boiling water, it may not need to be for some recipes and is ideal for use in sauces, seasonings, etc.

Diced Orange Peel has been cut into small pieces. It can be added dry to tea, mulling spice or simmering potpourri blends, but is frequently rehydrated before being used as an ingredient in baked goods & other recipes.  For additional sweetness it can be candied in sugar syrup.

Storage: Store dried orange peel in an air-tight container in a cool, dark, dry place.

Shelf Life:
A year or longer.

Died orange peel can be used in baked goods, mulling spices, brewing, homemade tea blends, spice blends, sauces and other applications. 

Diced orange peel is often rehydrated (see instructions below) and/or candied before use, while granulated orange peel can often be added directly to recipes.

Orange can be paired with a wide variety of flavors.  Here are some pairing suggestions to get you started: chocolate, honey, star anise, cinnamon, cloves, saffron, fruit (especially other citrus fruits), fennel, nuts (especially English walnuts & pine nuts), meats, poultry or seafood.

Rehydrating Dried Orange Peel:
For some applications you may want to rehydrate diced or granulated orange peel before use.  To do so, simply pour boiling water over the peel, cover it, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.  Drain off the water and use.

Both diced & granulated orange peel can be rehydrated.  Because granulated orange peel is smaller, rehydrating tends to be necessary for fewer applications.

Candying Diced Orange Peel:
Diced orange peel can be candied as you would other citrus zests.  Depending on your recipe, you may want to rehydrate it first (how to candy citrus zest).

Beyond its culinary applications, diced orange peel can also be used in simmered potpourri -mixtures of herbs, spices & flowers simmered in water to emit a pleasing aroma (rather than for food).
