If you've ever served fruit from a can, you have no doubt noticed the need to drain off the juice that surrounds it. Many simply pour canned fruit syrup down the drain and never think twice, but the next time you reach for some canned peaches, pears, pineapple, mandarin oranges, or fruit cocktail, you might want to try one of the following instead:

  • Pour the canned fruit juice into ice cube trays and freeze. Use the cubes to flavor a cool glass of ice water.

  • Freeze the juice in paper cups and give to kids as a slushy treat or insert plastic spoons to make them into frozen treats. Mixing various juices can enhance your options!

  • Use the canned fruit juice in place of water to flavor a white cake mix. Or mix it with powdered sugar, and use it as a glaze over the top.

  • Drain the syrup into a cup and drink it as you would any other fruit juice. Kids love this!

  • Use it instead of water when you make gelatin.

  • Add it to a pitcher of lemonade for a fruitier version of this summertime favorite.
