Tangerine Powder

January 5, 2011

This is just a quick & easy little recipe for tangerine powder. It’s great with chocolate, as a dessert topping and also in Asian cooking. It couldn’t be simpler, although you can make it more complicated by adding various spices or using candied skins instead. You can use pretty much any citrus fruit for this whose zest is light but flavoursome.

Just peel some tangerines, making sure to remove all the pith as it becomes very bitter. Heat the oven to about 110 °C and place the peel on a baking tray for a couple of hours or until they are dry and crisp. Allow them to cool then, using a pestle and mortar, grind the skins into a fine powder. It’s at this point you could add spices such as cinnamon, aniseed or cloves for example.

      You must try it! Tangerine/Clementines etc are so fragrant – it’s so worth it :) I forgot to say that you should keep it in an air-tight container and it should last about 2 weeks. Enjoy!
