Thinking outside of the can – with orange juice concentrate

Written by amy on January 22nd, 2014

Orange juice concentrate has been a staple in the freezer section of grocery stores for decades. The product, which is made by removing some of the water from orange juice, has uses far beyond just reconstituting it back into juice. The orange flavor is three times stronger in frozen concentrate, making it a great way to add a lot of flavor without a lot of liquid. This potent flavor booster can be used as a glaze for meat and fish, as a fast marinade or dressing, and more.  For best flavor and nutritional value, choose a brand with a “100% juice” label. This will ensure that you are buying only orange juice without any additives or extra sugar.

  • Mix with tahini and toasted sesame oil to create a salad dressing
  • Stir into sliced carrots sautéed with grated ginger
  • Whisk with soy sauce to make a marinade for pork or other meat
  • Blend with strawberries and yogurt for a smoothie
  • Stir into whipped cream and serve over pound cake
