Florida

LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- As the winter months linger, who wouldn't want to cook up a Florida getaway? Home chefs and citrus enthusiasts alike have the opportunity to put their culinary creativity to the test for a chance to win a grand prize trip to the Sunshine State. With the Back to the Grove recipe contest, the Florida Department of Citrus is calling for original recipes that showcase nutritious and delicious orange juice.

Thanks to their state's sunny, subtropical climate and sandy soil, Florida's citrus growers are known for producing the world's juiciest and most flavorful oranges. Each year, about 90 percent of Florida's orange crop is used to produce healthy, 100 percent orange juice, a favorite American breakfast beverage that also adds sweet citrus zing and a nutritious boost to recipes.

To enter the Back to the Grove recipe contest, aspiring chefs can submit a unique food or non-alcoholic beverage recipe that uses at least 8 ounces of 100 percent Florida orange juice. Entries received between now and March 14, 2008 qualify for a chance to win a grand prize trip to Florida. Contest entry forms and more information are available at http://www.floridajuice.com/backtothegrove.

An expert judging panel, including members of the highly acclaimed Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts teaching staff, will review all entries based on their innovation and uniqueness, health and nutrition value, and ease of preparation. Sunny Orlando awaits one grand prize winner and a guest, who will receive a three-night, four-day, citrus-inspired Florida experience, including a tour through peak-season orange groves and a personal cooking class with a renowned Florida chef.

Add a Splash of Citrus to Recipes

The health benefits of versatile orange juice -- as a refreshing beverage or an ingredient in breakfast, lunch or dinner recipes -- rival its invigorating taste. An 8-ounce glass of 100 percent Florida orange juice provides more than the recommended Daily Value of vitamin C, and is a good source of folate and potassium.

"Culinary trends this year are focusing on refreshingly bold flavors and natural ways to sweeten dishes," says Chef Scott Uehlein, executive chef of the renowned Canyon Ranch Health Resorts and SpaClubs. "Orange juice is one way to achieve this trend; I often add 100 percent Florida orange juice to many of my recipes."

To inspire Americans entering the Back to the Grove recipe contest, Uehlein has shared some of his favorite recipes that include 100 percent Florida orange juice. "After trying these recipes, I hope others can be as excited about using zesty, sweet pure Florida orange juice as I am." More of Uehlein's recipes can be found at http://www.floridajuice.com/backtothegrove.

The Florida Department of Citrus is an executive agency of Florida government charged with the marketing, research and regulation of the Florida citrus industry. Its activities are funded by a tax paid by growers on each box of citrus that moves through commercial channels. The industry employs more than 76,000 people, provides a $9.1 billion annual economic impact to the state, and contributes hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenues that help support Florida's schools, roads and health care services.
