One of the most intriguing and flavorful candies sold in Japan is candied yuzu peel. The yuzu is a citrus fruit that can be quite tart, but when candied, the peel exhibits an explosion of sweet and sour citrus flavor. The candied yuzu peel is made with a time-consuming artisan method that creates an unbeatably fine texture on the candy and ensures that the sugars stay attached to the peel without dropping off. This candied yuzu peel does not contain any food coloring, artificial fragrance, or preservatives. It's a great treat to hand out when you are having a Japanese dinner party!

Enjoy the candied yuzu peel as a refreshing snack accompanied with tea. You can also use it to make your own yuzu preserves that will have a wonderful citrus flavor. Another great idea is to coat the yuzu peel with dark chocolate, resulting in a delicious indulgent confectionary. It can also be used as a garnish for fragrant cocktails or mocktails. And the candied yuzu peel also has many applications for desserts; use it in cakes or atop pies and cakes as a garnish, add it to muffins and scones, or bake it into pies.

Yuzu, Beet Sugar, Millet Jelly, Ascorbic Acid.

What a pop!

This yuzu peel adds such a pop of flavor to my baked goods! I have ordered it three times now and hope it stays to order again!

Sour & Delicious

Sour yet sweet and delicious. Nice snack to have on hand or to put in iced tea.

Better Than Candy!

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.
