So, what is orange zest?

Orange zest is the outermost layer of an orange's skin, containing essential oils that lend a bright, citrusy aroma and flavor to dishes. It's commonly used in baking, cooking, and cocktail making for its potent, zesty notes that can add a refreshing touch to any recipe. To achieve the best results, the zest should be finely grated or peeled from the orange before the bitter white pith underneath is exposed. Orange zest is a versatile ingredient that can be used to enhance both sweet and savory dishes, adding a burst of orange flavor and aroma.
