5 Ways to Boost Your Easter Feast
Easter is a time for indulging in delicious food, and adding orange juice to your Easter feast can give your dishes a fresh and tangy twist. Here are five ways to boost your Easter feast using orange juice:
Glaze your ham with Orange Juice
Instead of using the traditional glaze for your Easter ham, try using orange juice instead. Mix orange juice, brown sugar, and honey together and brush it onto the ham before baking. The result is a sweet and tangy ham that will have your guests coming back for more.
Make a citrusy salad dressing
Make a light and refreshing salad dressing by mixing together orange juice, olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, and a dash of salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over a salad of mixed greens, strawberries, and pecans for a colorful and flavorful dish.
Create a festive cocktail
A fun, Easter Cranberry Mimosa is a delightful twist on the classic brunch cocktail. To make this refreshing drink, start with a base of chilled champagne or sparkling wine. Add in some orange juice and a splash of tart cranberry juice for a pop of festive colour and flavour, as shown in this recipe. Garnish the cocktail with a skewered berry and a sprig of fresh mint for an extra touch of elegance. The tangy sweetness of the cranberry juice balances perfectly with the crisp bubbles of the champagne, making for a delicious and celebratory drink that’s perfect for Easter brunch or any springtime gathering.
Add a citrus twist to your side dishes
Add some zing to your Easter side dishes by making orange and honey glazed carrots. Simply toss your carrots in a mixture of orange juice, honey, and butter, and roast until tender and caramalised.
Serve a citrusy dessert
Cool down with a refreshing and citrusy orange sorbet. Simply blend together orange juice, sugar, and ice, and freeze until firm. Serve in a chilled glass and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
