Bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) is the type of orange often used to make orange marmalade.
Bitter orange is a beautiful evergreen tree and although its flowers are incredibly fragrant, the actual fruit is very sour and bitter (hence the name).
Aside from being a key ingredient in Marmalade, bitter orange peel is used in many different things. Bitter orange is used as a flavoring agent in many foods and beverages, including liquors, marinades, jams, desserts, candies and gelatins and for its fragrance in bath and body care products. Try infusing the peel to make soaps, body scrubs, and skin care products. Also used in teas and it has even been used to cover up the taste of pharmaceuticals
Other common names include: bigarade, marmalade orange, Seville orange, and sour orange.
