The orange flavor does overpower the lemon but the lemon is still present. Overall a nice simple topping. Read More

Really full flavored. I am pairing it with plain meringues. It's got a great sweetness to complement the tartness. Read More

Wonderfully simple quick and delicious. I eyeballed rather than measuring the ingedients using the juice and the zest of a large lemon. In any event it turned out great. Read More

Tasty and simple enough. I used Meyer lemon juice so I used more lemon and less orange. I also used corn starch as I was unable to find arrowroot powder. I served this with an apple cake and it was delicious. Read More

I made this sauce to top 'Irish Apple Cake' from AR. Loved it! I did not have arrowroot so I subbed cornstarch. This cooks up to a nice soft-gel like consistency. I will be making this again. Thanks Melly343 for sharing. Read More

Excellent way to use up that last cup of orange juice. 1c. OJ 1.5T cornstarch 1/4c honey 1T lemon juice...microwaved 1 minute stirred another minute stirred 1/2 minute stirred. I adjusted the amounts of honey and lemon juice to complement the sweetness of the orange juice. Great simple recipe that I will use often for desserts and cooking with chicken and pork. Read More
