Orange Sauce for Gingerbread
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoons light corn syrup
3/4 cup water

Mix the sugars with the cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Gradually add orange and lemon juices, stirring vigorously to avoid lumps. Stir in orange rind, salt, butter, corn syrup, and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until the sauce thickens, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve hot over gingerbread.

Would love to substitute honey for the sugar and to use a lemon sauce instead of the orange. My grandmother used to serve gingerbread with lemon sauce. Yum!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
