I don't know why this recipe calls for 2 whole tablespoons of cornstarch for 4 servings.... It was like eating gelatin!! The taste was good, but I'd suggest not wasting your cashews on this because their flavor was lost in the sweet orange citrus plus too much honey.

Delicious! This turns out best with fresh squeezed orange juice and a little additional orange peel. I also like to triple the ginger, which brings out the flavor more.
