When you taste these candied peels be prepared for one of those OMG moments. It is a total explosion of flavor in your mouth. The Japanese are masters of ingredient processing. Unlike candied citrus peels in the US that are gooey and sticky, these are dry to the touch. That's because they use beet sugar which is not only natural but much healthier.
The texture is soft and chewy and the aroma is amazing. I have used them in salad dressings and marinades. Perhaps one of the best things you can do is to use them in cocktails. They bring a fragrance that is unmistakable to an Aperol Spritz or a Negroni. Finally, you can use them as an exceptionally colorful garnish for almost any dish.
These peels belong in every serious pantry.
