Sweet Orange Sauce

Servings: 2 cups


  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup orange juice concentrate*
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon butter


  • Whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside. Combine the water and the orange juice concentrate in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk them together and then add the dry ingredients. Cook the mixture, stirring frequently, until the sauce is clear and thickened. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter. Serve warm and Enjoy!
  • Any remaining sauce will keep well in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • * I buy orange juice concentrate only to make this recipe. You can open the can of concentrate, remove what you need and transfer the remaining amount to a mason jar. Then simply place it back in the freezer until you need it again.
