It is deep winter, and with the dearth of fresh fruit in grocery stores I am very thankful for oranges.
The thing is, making your own orange juice in the mornings is super easy and very fast if you have a citrus juicer. There are some simple options out there, but I am partial to a motorized juicer. Over a year ago I bought a Citristar Citrus Juicer for KT as a present. Unfortunately for him, his kitchen was too small and the juicer now lives with me in Louisville. Lucky for me, I have been using it all winter and keep a bowl of oranges on my kitchen counter.
The juicer means that I can have a cup of orange juice in five minutes, clean up included. The whole process is therapeutic and a great way to start the morning - try it out!
Two navel oranges amount to about a cup of juice.
Right now is the orange's time to shine, so be prepared for a another orange post this week (orange marmalade coming up soon!).
