Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice From My Tree

Post by Goose55 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 11:44 am

The Arizona Sweet Oranges from my little dwarf tree are small but plenteous this year and I just picked and squeezed many for sugar sweet juice. But they are best enjoyed quartered and eaten off the rind. Tremendous flavor and an added tartness about them from the many chilly winter mornings. The Virgina-Perique of oranges!

Nice, Goose.

I noticed today we still have some grapes on the vine. Time for some ice wine
