So, what is orange zests?

Orange zests are thin strips of the orange's outermost layer or peel. These flavorful, aromatic, and brightly colored strips are packed with essential oils that add a burst of citrusy flavor and fragrance to any dish. Unlike the white pith, which can be bitter, orange zests are sweet and tangy. They are a versatile ingredient used in both sweet and savory dishes, from baked goods and cocktails to marinades and dressings. Orange zests also contain antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients, making them a healthy addition to any meal.
