Cooking with Orange Juice
Packed with Vitamin C, Orange juice is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. It fights infections like colds and flus, and helps the body ward off free radicals that can lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease. With OJ’s great taste and health benefits, it’s always a great time to enjoy a glass of “liquid sunshine.”
But orange juice isn’t just for drinking… it can also add some zest to just about any recipe!
Thawing Frozen Orange Juice Quickly
Keeping a few cans of orange juice in the freezer can you help “chill out” during the warm summer months ahead. The only catch is that when the craving hits, you have to wait around for the concentrate to thaw. Here are three easy steps to help you speed things up.
1. Hold the can of frozen concentrate under hot water for a minute or two. This should melt the concentrate just enough so it releases easily from the can.
2. Dump the block of concentrate into a pitcher and add the suggested amount of water.
3. Use an immersion blender to mix the frozen block with the water. The mixer will produce a smooth, lump-free juice… with no waiting.
