The Mandarin orange’s iconic look, taste, and aroma are globally embraced worldwide – in and out of the kitchen. Like the clementine, it is just one of those ingredients kitchens can’t–and won’t–shake. The Mandarin orange is perfectly sweet and tangy with vanilla and spicy components in its flavor profile. It can flow in and out of different dishes, perfectly keeping up with chefs’ imaginations. Certainly, it doesn’t hurt that they are virtually seedless and easy to peel, saving chefs time, without sacrificing flavor.
