Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
I do have dried grated orange peel in my cupboard but I use it only when I have no other choice. I will sometimes mix a 2 - 3 drops of orange oil with each teaspoon prior to use. For fresh orange zest see lemon zest (all fresh citrus zest is made in the same way).
