Orange peel zest is the high oil outer peel of the orange, without the bitter white section. Try adding this dried orange zest to breads, cookies, pies, and other desserts. Orange peel can be added to rice for extra flavor, or used to spice up hot or iced tea.Dehydrated orange zest has a concentrated flavor, so you only need add a third of what your recipe calls for in fresh peel. To rehydrate, add three parts water to one part peel and let stand 15 minutes. We recommend these grated orange peel zest granules be kept in an air-tight jar. The essential oil content, which gives it such a strong flavor, is so high that it will actually degrade a plastic bag in a matter of hours. Ingredients: Orange peel.

I ordered orange zest to add to my tea brewing basket, and now always add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon.
Wonderful addition to my Cranberry scones
Why work so hard? I have all three of the SH Zests. I use them all the time. Far more cost effective than buying extra fruits just trying to get a decent volume of zest, from less than quality fruits. Now I use my zests in many more ways, and it’s affordable. No knuckle-busting!
All the spices I purchased were great!
