Sunshine in a glass

That is how Pam described the freshly squeezed glass of orange juice that she had with her breakfast this morning. Her poetic description aptly sums up the pleasure of drinking freshly squeezed orange juice.

We used to have orange juice in the UK and we have bought cartons of orange juice here to have with our breakfast. Neither comes close to the flavour of fruit that has been picked and then squeezed straight away.

Although oranges will keep if stored properly, they seem to become drier with time and loose their intense flavour. The fruit our friend brings us from his trees are bursting with juice and have the most delicious flavour.

Eating one rather than squeezing it is a very messy but rewarding process!
