Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Neighbors came by to offer a bag of 100 oranges for $3.50. I knew everyone would enjoy eating the oranges, but the ladies offered to make fresh squeezed orange juice for us all.

With dull knives they sat and peeled them all as they counted out each and every one. The neighbor had shorted us and they went back to let him know and collect the remaining oranges.

They had to squeeze the juice from every orange half.

Orange juice turns into more of an orange drink by adding water and sugar, boiling it and then having to cool it down. Some still preferred to eat the orange.

  3. Sounds like they’re making what we call “orange ade” — might be a bit sweet for me, so I’d stick with the fresh squeezed juice. Great photos.

  6. How wonderful to have fresh oranges! I’m curious why they peeled them — did they save the peels and use them for something else? Or was it to make the oranges easier to squeeze by hand?

  8. Epic neighbors! The boiled version sounds like an orange syrup, which I’m thinking would be a great addition to iced tea.
