Trained with a world pastry champion/MOF- this is what he uses for Panettone and it's the only orange/citron I will use. The best and arrives re-packaged & fresh. The huge box it comes in would take me years to use up. Perfect!
Every year (for the past 25) on the Friday following Thanksgiving, I start my fruitcakes. I souse my fruit and nut mix for a week in brandy for the dark version. I also make a light version, called Dowager Duchess Fruitcake with candied lemon, candied orange and almonds with sherry. It always gets rave reviews, even from those who have sworn never to allow fruitcake to pass their lips. The orange and lemon peel from Market Hall has been the best I have ever used and when someone asks for the recipe for the cake, I also give them the Market Hall info for the fruit.
Every year I bake Colomba di Pascqua. I always have a difficult time finding candied orange peel (and I've failed repeatedly trying to make my own). Over the years, I've tried a few different sources but Market Hall has the best - the highest quality orange peel at the best price!
Market Hall was the first place I went when candied orange peel was the secret ingredient I added to a dried fruit confection I make for Christmas. Yes, I could make candied orange peel, but my inner Martha Stewart said, don't knock yourself out, look for a source that would carry the good stuff. And that is Market Hall Foods. Always the starting point for high quality food as well as unusual ingredients. And excellent customer service is a plus.
I had such a hard time finding this product, without color added or some other offensive ingredient. These are without fault, and I will continue to order as needed for my baking and snacking.
