Another interesting application of soda is quickbreads. You can omit baking powder in most qjickbread recipes (pancakes, muffins, spice or bannana nut bread, etc.). Some interesting uses would be to use orange soda to make orange muffins, pineapple soda could be used along with chunks of cooked pineapple in pancakes or muffins, etc.
Also, lemon/lime soda's work wonderfully with chicken dishes. Orange works well with pork. Great barbecue sauce can be had from root beer used as the base.
Use your imagination. Orange chicken is easy when you use orange soda in place of orange juice and orange peel.
Think of sodas as the flavor of the citrus rinds, but sweetened. Their flavors come from the oils found in the rind rather than from the fruit juice.
