Orange trees range in height from 8-15 meters depending on the variety. Their small fragrant blossoms are white with five petals curled around a central cluster of yellow stamens. Buds often develop in late winter, but fully emerge in early spring. Their scent is sweet and heady reminiscent of jasmine, tuberose, nutmeg and fresh grass. While highly aromatic, Orange blossoms taste unpleasantly bitter and may have a soapy flavor.
While Orange blossoms are aesthetically pleasing and beautifully scented, they do not offer much in the way of flavor, and are best used as an oil or infused water. Orange flower water adds a sweet perfumed note to dairy rich desserts and elevates the fruitiness of chocolate and the floral quality of dried fruits.
Pair orange flower water with mascarpone, buttermilk, cream, caramel, vanilla, pistachios, almonds, dates, dried fig, anise, cinnamon, cardamom and honey. Orange flower water is a classic ingredient in the Ramos Gin Fizz and also pairs well with champagne. It can easily overwhelm a cocktail or dessert and should be used sparingly.
