    What to do with frozen orange juice? 12th Sep 05 at 6:37 AM
    A while ago I had a heap of oranges and everybody was getting sick of them so I squeezed the juice and popped it in the freezer. I think I have the juice of 5 oranges. I thought I'd make some marmalade or something like that for Xmas hampers but all my recipes are for orange pulp as well as the juice. Does anybody have any suggestions what I could make with them keeping in mind, I can put the product into jars and give away. I don't think a jar of orange juice will go down really well. Come to think of it, might give one to MIL.

    Any reason you can't just drink it or use it in a fruit salad?

    OK girls time to let your imagination run wild
    Think of Xmas day, opening presents........drum roll
    you get a jar of carrot & orange soup & a vodka slush puppy - which has mysteriously disappeared or melted
    I can see me getting death stares all day.
    Thanks guys.
    Might buy some more oranges & drink the lot in the freezer.

    You could indeed buy an orange or two more and get the zest off them (use them up some other way) and make orange curd.

    Just use the recipe for lemon curd from our Old Style Recipe Collection but use orange instead.

    I like the sound of that orange curd actually, and have a couple of bags of oranges sitting here not doing much right now ...

    If you do report back and tell us what it tasted like. I think I'll try the curd. I love lemon curd so it should be ok.

    Thanks C_Q - but I thought the vodka was more sensible!

    Anyway - last time I had oranges I took the zest off before I ate them. Sooner or later I'm going to make an extra zingy orange and chocolate cake.

    Oh, and change of subject while aussielass is still with us - I made the impossible pie over the weekend but the pastry and custard didn't settle out so I got a sludge.

    I took a "moderate" oven to mean Gas mark 4. What should it have been?

    Goodness me Squeaky, that's impossible I've been making that pie for 15 years and I've never stuffed it up. What the hell did you do with it. Hehe. Well moderate to me is around 180 degrees. I don't have gas. Better luck next time.

    I did and he liked it. I did not add onion as we didn't have any so I cooked the carrots in veg stock. Whizzed it up in the blender added orange juice as it was thick. Added some dried veg and some cous cous and he loved it it. I used a carrot and half and that made a generous portion for my husband.

    I am not a soup person.

    And around 180C is gas mark 4.

    So it should have worked. Hm...

    I'm new to this cooker so I don't really believe in it yet. It's VERY hard to set the temperatures on the dials. I'll give it another go in a week or three
