- 2/3 cup Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- 1 navel orange, seedless
- ¼ cup orange juice concentrate

- Whisk Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules, water and cornstarch together in a medium saucepot. Heat over medium heat, stirring until granules dissolve. Bring mixture to a gentle boil and boil 3 minutes until syrup is slightly thickened and reduced. Lower temp, if needed, to keep mixture from boiling over.
