Spicy Orange Glaze




Yield 1 cup



  1. Cut your oranges in half and squeeze.
  2. In a small pot over medium high heat, add in your orange juice. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add in your red pepper flakes and in a small bowl combine the arrowroot and cold water, mixing till dissolved. Add that into the boiling orange juice and whisk till evenly combined.
  4. Turn the heat off and let your mixture sit.
  5. Whisk every couple of minutes to check the consistency. It should thicken up in just a couple minutes.
  6. Let it cool, add in any extra seasonings you’d like. I just added a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness. Minced garlic is another wonderful addition.
  7. Pour into an air tight container and let cool to room temperature before you store it in the fridge.


Use as a dip, sauce, glaze or marinade. This will keep fresh about 1-2 weeks. Transfer to ice cube trays and store in your freezer, covered, if you’d like to save them even longer.
