Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice Courtesy of the Sous Chef

My in-laws have an orange tree, and we are provided with many bags full of organic oranges during orange season. We also receive oranges in our CSA boxes, so there are always plenty of oranges in our house. Unfortunately, oranges are not my favorite fruit, but I know I shouldn't complain about too many oranges...


Hubby loves oranges and eats quite a few of them throughout the week. Yesterday, after we had all eaten oranges for a few days, our kitchen was still overflowing with oranges, so I decided to make some orange juice. As soon as my sous chef spotted the juicer, he decided to take over. And he did a fantastic job juicing orange after orange all by himself.




Of course he had to taste it! He said it was a bit sour but yummy.



Hubby liked it, too.


Questions: Do you like orange juice? Do you every squeeze your own? What’s your favorite juice? I actually prefer a nice green juice over any fruit juice.

Be well,
Andrea

  1. Years of acid reflux prior to Prilosec spoiled orange juice for me. I can't look at it without feeling pain! I do enjoy using it in cooking though. I love the flavor of citrus with poultry and in salads.

  2. Those PJs are awesome! So cute! I'm a fan of OJ, not as much as my husband though. We've never made our own!

  4. I love oranges (a lot - not just favorite fruit - probably one of my favorite foods) but I have NEVER had fresh squeezed OJ.

  5. What a cutie! He is adorable. What a good little helper. We do like OJ. I have made it myself, but not anytime recently. My neighbor grows tangerine things and I think if he gives us those again I will make it into juice.

  6. I love orange juice - but since its so high in carbs, I usually opt for the actual orange.

    The toddler is getting so big - but I still love his feetie pajamas!

  7. How darling that he wanted to help!
    I don't have a juicer but fresh squeezed juice is pretty delicious! I normally don't drink juice, so it is a nice treat to have once and a while.

  8. Nick and I have been IN LOVE with oranges lately. I keep buying these gigantic ones at the store (probably NOT organic...) and we can't get enough. I know I bought a juicer but I prefer eating them whole (your juicer is a lot more simple than ours, which takes forever to clean!). I'm excited to juice fresh berries and pineapple this summer.

  9. Awww. So cute!! I need a sous chef! If you need a babysitter in Vancouver, we'll supply the oranges, you supply the sous! Funny!!! My husband LOVES juices, me? I'd rather eat my points than drink it. Have a great day Andrea!! (your husband's haircut comment is hilarious!!)

  10. He's such a cutie!

    I love oranges but I don't really drink juice unless it's got a bunch of veggies in it. I might toss in an orange though.

  14. Too cute - both toddler and hubby! I'm afraid I'm with you, oranges by themselves don't light my fire, but I love making salads, sauces and vinaigrettes with them.

  15. We had orange trees in both of our backyards at our old house. Now we don't . :-( Thing 1 loved to make (and hoard) orange juice. Sous Chef = SUPER CUTENESS!

  16. I can't believe how big the toddler is getting! WOW!

    I'm not a big juice fan at all, but my kids love the freshly squeezed OJ at the market. I would, however, love an orange tree!!!
