Citrus Zests and Blends - Information and Spice Variations

Citrus fruits were some of the earliest cultivated plants, and almost every culture has used the tart, astringent flavors of citrus fruits in its cuisine.

Citrus zest is used in recipes from marinades to muffins, but when you don't have time to grate your own fresh, our dried zests pack a lot of flavor into a small spoonful of granules. Citrus blends bring that same sweet/sour taste to any dish with the shake of a jar, and many of them are excellent salt replacements for those on a low-sodium diet.
