Our Diced Bitter Orange has a lovely aroma and characteristic citrus flavor, making it ideal for marinades, desserts, teas, and other beverages.
The bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) is also known as the Seville orange, sour orange, bigarade orange, or marmalade orange, and it has a stronger aroma and flavor than the usual sweet orange. Thick skins, sour juice, and tart, acidic pulp characterize these fragrant citrus fruits.
Bitter oranges are usually utilized as flavoring agents in various meals and drinks due to their tart, sour flavor. Although bitter oranges are used in a variety of recipes around the world, they are most known for their use in marmalades and marinades for fish and meats, such as Mexican cochinita pibil. Several popular beverages, such as Belgian white beers (witbier) and Nordic mulled wine (glögg), as well as orange liqueurs such as triple sec and curaçao, contain the peel. Bitter oranges are used in fragrances, essential oils, and soaps because their scent is more fragrant than that of regular sweet oranges.
Bitter oranges, like other citrus fruits, are thought to be native to Southeast Asia, and were most likely brought to Europe via trade routes around the 9th century. Around the 12th century, the bitter orange became widely cultivated in Seville, Spain, earning it the nickname "Seville orange."
