BITTER ORANGE

ABOUT

The bitter orange looks quite like a sweet orange, but it has bumpy skin. The fruit isn’t sweet, but bitter and contains very little juice. The orange is used as an ingredient in marmalade, liqueur and desserts.

PREPARATION

The bitter orange doesn’t really lend itself to just eating it peeled out of your hands. However, it is an ideal fruit for making orange marmalade. The peel can also be used for this purpose. The bitter orange can be stored at room temperature for a week. Any unripened fruit will ripen best at room temperature.
