Candied bergamot peel has a heady, floral-citrus perfume. The bitter-sweet flavour is like a cross between grapefruit and lime with orange-blossom notes.
Pieces of candied bergamot peel are delightful in the centre of dark chocolate truffles. Slice the peel into thin strips to decorate a cake or garnish a cocktail.
Bergamots are perhaps most well-known for giving Earl Grey tea its distinctive aroma. Most bergamots are only grown along the coast of Reggio di Calabria in Italy, and any products made with those fruits are under constant scrutiny by the Italian government to ensure the highest quality.
The quarters of bergamot peel retain a layer of white pith. When stored in a cool place, sugars will crystallise on the surface of the peel, appearing as a white ‘bloom’. This is natural and does not affect the quality or flavour of the product.
