The Candied orange They are not the first thing we think about this citrus fruit, since oranges on the table and fields full of orange blossom are symbols of the Spanish Mediterranean. But, unlike other seasons of the year, at Christmas we hope that our oranges will be candied and that their flavor will sweeten those special holidays even more.
For many years our choice to confit fruit has been our friends: the artisans of Colomina Fruits . They choose to preserve only those specimens of oranges that seem heavy for their size, with a smooth, firm, bright peel and an intense orange color, clean, without any type of blow. And always of domestic origin. Its artisan confit process involves several days of work that requires a lot of knowledge, precision and meticulousness. The result is an unsurpassed product in terms of quality.
