Brighten Up Your Summer with Nielsen-Massey Flavors

With the return of warm weather, snacks turn into poolside treats and meals become outdoor barbecues. Nielsen-Massey’s Pure Flavor Extracts ensure that the dishes you’re serving up are bright and refreshing. Try them out in the following recipes, which highlight floral and citrus notes to match the season.

Mango Jalapeno Sorbet is bright and tangy, perfect for beating the heat, and adds an unexpected kick to spice up your classic sorbet. Organic Pure Orange Extract gives this treat the ideal balance of fresh and sweet. Bonus idea: make a double batch of the sorbet and save half to use later in this Mango Ginger Faux Mimosa. 

French Almond Macarons are a visually and texturally delicate treat. Create this sophisticated summer dessert by using the aromatic, floral flavors of Orange Blossom Water and Rose Water. To create perfectly uniform tops for your macarons, dip your finger into a bowl of water and gently smooth out any peaks.

For a savory side that screams summer, try this Lemony Grilled Potato Salad. The key to the dish is Organic Pure Lemon Extract, which brightens it up with just the right amount of acidity.  From prep to table, this dish takes only 35 minutes. Plus, it’s easily packable for cookouts and picnics. Want to be the MVP of your summer barbecue? Keep your lemon extract handy after you prepared the potato salad and use it to whip up two dozen of these Retro Deviled Eggs.
