A brief history of orangettes

Egyptians were “precursors” in terms of the preparation and consumption of candied fruit. They were used to this particular method for fruits preservation, a practice that would later be popularized in Europe from the fifteenth century. Orangettes “drift” from this preservation process. It would have been created in 1978 by Guillaume de Montgolfier.

The original recipe, which remains the most popular, is to candy orange and coat them with black, creamy chocolate. Other variants appeared later: the citronnette (lemon peel base) and pamplemoussette (grapefruit peel base). Some confectioners also replace dark chocolate with milk chocolate or white chocolate.

Preparing orangettes with Delices and Gourmandises: list of ingredients

OrangettesTo prepare about fifty orangettes, you need three large oranges. It is recommended to choose untreated varieties with thicker skin. Take 250 g of sugar and 300 grams of dark chocolate. To get perfect orangettes, you also need greaseproof paper and a dipping fork.

It is advisable to peel the oranges into quarters, leaving a minimum of white flesh on the skin so that the sticks are not too fine. The slats should ideally measure about 0.5 cm width so that they do not break at the time of the icing.
