Recipes using natural juices.

Posted by Aleksandra Glapinska on

We can enjoy drinking fruit juice all year around. But they could be also served in a different way, used as a healthy ingredient to create a range of dishes from desserts to stews. Here are a couple of the recipes to inspire you. They have been created by Cawston, a producer of pure juices made of fresh fruit and vegetables, pressed and gently packed into sealed cartons to save a full aroma of the summer days. 

In this article, I`ve chosen the recipes including a few of original fruit and veg juice sorts. To see the recipes related to the blend of apple and beetroot go to this article

RHUBARB & STRAWBERRY LOLLIES

Fresh fruit and juice lollies! 

Serves: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • Cawston Press Apple and Rhubarb Juice
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Ice lolly moulds

METHOD

Blend equal parts chopped fresh strawberries and Cawston Press Apple & Rhubarb juice. Pour into lolly makers and freeze until set before de-moulding and serving to small (or big) people.

Cawston Tips

Why just stick to strawberries? Why not try adding your favourite fruit?

ONION GRAVY

Add a splash of juice to brighten up your gravy

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • Apple & Ginger juice
  • Stock (ideally homemade stock but alternatively we like to use marigold bouillon)
  • Onions, sliced
  • Mustard (optional)

METHOD

Add equal measures of Apple & Ginger juice and stock, to sweated onions and reduce to make a delicious gravy for meaty pork sausages.

Swirl in some mustard for an extra dimension of flavour.

Cawston Tips

Adding a sprinkle of sugar to sauces and stews helps to bring out the flavour. We prefer to use a splash of juice instead.

 

APPLE & ELDERFLOWER VINAIGRETTE

A lovely, light salad dressing

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • Apple & Elderflower juice
  • Cider vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

METHOD

Whisk three parts Apple & Elderflower juice with two parts cider vinegar and six parts olive oil, then season to taste, for a most agreeable salad dressing.

Cawston Tips

Try using a splash of our other juices in your recipes to add a little fruity sweetness. It works a little like seasoning. Try it in gravy, stews and pasta sauces.

THE CAWSTON HOT TODDY

Ginger & spice and all things nice 

Serves: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 shots of whisky or brandy
  • Cawston Press Apple & Ginger juice
  • Runny honey
  • Lemon
  • Slices of root ginger
  • 3 cloves
  • Stick of cinnamon

METHOD

In a small pan gently heat 200ml Cawston Press Apple & Ginger juice, a teaspoon of runny honey, the juice of ¼ lemon, a slice of lemon, a slice of root ginger, 3 cloves and a stick of cinnamon until hot but not boiling.

Put 2 shots of whisky or brandy into a toddy glass or a mug and pour the whole lot over it. Sip daintily.

Cawston Tips

Cawston`s Apple & Ginger juice is lovely just on its own – served hot or chilled. Please drink responsibly.
