To add a fragrant note of deep orange flavor to your baking, these candied orange peels from Agrimontana are an elegantly crafted solution. Hand-cut from ripe oranges grown in the hot southern sun of Calabria, in the “toe” of Italy’s boot, these strips of peel retain all the luscious essential oils that make orange peel so aromatic, with none of the bitter pith. They’re carefully candied in syrup to preserve and protect them—and make them utterly delicious!—leaving the finished product ready to use as a baking ingredient or stand alone as a garnish.

Azienda Agrimontana is based in the northwestern region of Piedmont, which shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. Agrimontana’s history in Piedmont began 50 years ago, when Cesare Bardini began selling jams, candied fruit, and chestnuts in 1972. He had one mission: to share the natural riches of his home across Italy.

To this day, Agrimontana is dedicated to creating deliciously clean products using traditional methods, without added colors, preservatives, or flavorings. They focus on sustainable agriculture that preserves the beauty of their home while encouraging biodiversity. Agrimontana works directly with Italian farmers across the country to ensure their harvest only takes up the fruit that’s at its peak ripeness, so you get only the very best flavor of pure Italian fruit.

These candied orange peels are fragrant, sweet, and just the right amount of bitter, with a rich orange flavor. Chop and mix candied orange peel into Giada’s famous orange olive oil cake for an extra dose of citrus bliss, or use as a garnish for elegant cakes and cookies of all kinds. Try them as a cocktail garnish on your next old-fashioned!
