Recipe Notes
  • Try mixing things up and play around with the spices and make your own combination of flavours.
  • Make your own dried mandarin zest by zesting mandarin and drying out the zest in the oven at roughly 200 °F / 80 °C. Spread out the zest on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dry in the oven for an hour turning the zest halfway making sure it dries evenly. Once dry, take out of the oven to cool and use a mortar and pestle to ground it into powder. For this recipe the zest of two mandarins should be enough.
