Orange Blossom Water, or also called Mazaher, is a product widely used in many Lebanese pastries, puddings, syrups, and jams. It’s even used on what is called “White Coffee”, which is hot water added to orange blossom water.
Most of the Orange Blossom Water production in Lebanon comes from Maghdoucheh, a village in the south of Lebanon, 50 km from Beirut. The village is well known for Our Lady of Mantara and occupies a hill with an elevation between 200 and 229 m above sea level, overlooking Saida city.
