How to Make Orange Zest the Star of Your Spice Rack
Ever feel like your day needs a ray of sunshine? Orange zest, the name often used for orange peel as a spice or seasoning, is your answer. Sweeter than lemon zest and packing a tangy punch, it adds a bright burst of flavor to liven up even the most lackluster of meals.
But Spice Islands know that you can’t always have a fresh orange on hand, ready to be zested. That’s why we’ve bottled the fresh, citrus flavor of orange zest in a resealable container, ready for any moment you need it.
Here below are just a few fun ways to give your day a dash of sunshine with Spice Islands Orange Peel.
Enliven dressings and dips
Just a pinch of orange zest can pump instant orange flavor into dips and marinades, without compromising the consistency change that would happen if you were to add orange juice. Try a dash in your morning yogurt, in a marinade for meats like pork or chicken, in cranberry sauce, or in a vinaigrette salad dressing.
Make Instagram-worthy cakes
Who needs sprinkles when you’ve got orange zest? A smattering of orange zest and an edible flower added to a frosted cake brings a more complex sweetness to your dessert than sprinkles—and makes your dessert almost too pretty to eat.
Spruce up your drinks
Want to make your in-home cocktails or mocktails as tasty as the ones you’d find at your local upscale bar? It’s all in the rim. Mix orange zest and fine sugar for a tangy rim for your mimosas, or pair with tajin and salt for a refreshing margarita. Delicious!
