The fresh and subtle flavor of bergamot extract is a favorite among our staff. This extract adds a tasty citrus, floral accent to ice cream, baked goods, beverages, and vinaigrettes. It's also great in sorbets and fruit sauces, and a few drops turn standard black tea into Earl Grey. Bergamot flavored shortbread and muffins are the perfect accompaniment to afternoon tea.
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is a small citrus fruit that grows mainly in Southern Italy. The fruit, made of a cross of Seville oranges and pear lemons, is sour and inedible. Bergamot is grown for the essential oil contained its peel. This oil is used in Earl Grey tea as well as various fragrances. Bergamot is not related to the herb of the same name.
