General use

History & Background

The orange originated in Asia, specifically in Southern China, Northeast India and Myanmar. The earliest mention of the sweet orange was in Chinese literature in 314 BC, a long time ago. Today, orange trees are one of the most cultivated fruit trees in the world.

It was the explorer Christopher Columbus who first brought this citrus fruit to North America in 1493. Sir Francis Carew is said to have grown the first orange trees in the UK on his estate in Surrey, some time before 1562.

General Use

These 100% natural dried orange slices are ideal for adding to mulled wine, garnishing gin, crafting into scented wreaths and much more. As with the orange peel, dried slices can be used for the same purposes. However, whole dried orange slices tend to be used where a decorative effect is required.

Increasingly, dried orange slices are being used by bars, pubs, hotels and restaurants to decorate drinks. They have a number of advantages over fresh slices, including longevity, convenience and aesthetics; depending on the drink, they can look even more appealing than fresh slices, giving the beverage a ‘rustic’ look.

Dehydrating orange slices further intensifies the citrus flavour too. In the right drink, this powerful flavour can work beautifully, adding to the overall taste and look.

There are all kinds of different ways you can incorporate dried orange slices into your recipes. You can adorn your celebration cakes with them or even add them to a marinade for added zest. Along with cloves, they are perfect for adding to mulled wine or cider. They’re also a classic gin garnish that helps brighten up the appearance of a G&T.

Dried orange slices for crafts offer a decorative quality and an invigorating citrus scent. They are used at Christmas for decorations and wreath or garland making (often combined with cinnamon sticks and clovers).

Dried orange slices can be included in potpourri mixes and added to bath salts or scrubs.

Frequently Asked Questions

The shelf life can vary. Always refer to the use-by-date on the label. In general, if they’re stored correctly, they can last up to two to three years. After the two-year mark, they can start to turn brown, and when that happens, it means they are past their best.

Ideally, you will want to store these in an airtight container that is kept in a dry and cool place. This can help keep the humidity out and ensure that they last as long as possible.

You can use these for a number of things that include, but aren't limited to, cake and drink decorations, tea and mulled drink infusions and fragranced products for the house, such as potpourri.

Many establishments are increasingly switching to dried orange slices instead of fresh ones. This is because of the advantages they have to offer. For example, dried orange slices can add a rustic or vintage aesthetic to a drink. They often have a more visually appealing and unique look compared to fresh slices, which can be especially appealing in craft cocktail bars where presentation is important. They have a longer shelf life than fresh slices, are more consistent, pack a more powerful flavour and are more convenient - less preparation is required compared to fresh oranges, which need to be sliced, stored properly, and replaced frequently.
