Q:

Where can I purchase orange blossom water?

A:

Orange blossom water, also called orange flower water, can be found in local stores and on Amazon and the websites for World Market and King Arthur Flour as of May 2014. It can also be made at home.

Orange blossom water is distilled water made from bitter orange blossoms. It contains the essential oils of the orange blossom and has a distinctive fragrance. Orange blossom water is commonly used in Moroccan and Mediterranean cooking, especially in the preparation of desserts and sweets.

Some specialty food markets, bakery supply shops and liquor stores also carry orange blossom water. This fragrant cooking ingredient can be made at home by steeping orange blossom petals, but the steeping process takes several weeks.
