Granulated dried orange peel is a fast and easy way to include the orange citrus flavors to desserts, sauces, gravies, or even meat dishes. Also commonly used as a garnish for a pop of color in dishes or to flavor craft home-brewed beer. Ready to use as is, no preparation is necessary. If using to bake, can use as is or may use re-hydrated Granulated Orange Peel. To re-hydrate this dried fruit, let the product sit for 5-10 minutes in boiling water, covered. Drain well and use according to recipe. Dehydrated orange zest has a concentrated flavor, so you only need add a third of what your recipe calls for in fresh peel. While they may be tiny in size, these citrus granules aren't lacking in nutritional value. Orange peel contains vitamin C, calcium, and potassium. It's also known for providing dietary fiber that aids digestion, and flavonoids that can reduce inflammation. Approx. 5.5 cups
