The best glass of orange juice I've ever had in my life.


homegrown oranges + Noni's juicer = l.o.v.e.

My brother has been bringing me oranges from his tree for the past couple of weeks. He started when I was so sick...he just knew that the homegrown Vitamin C was exactly what I needed. And he was right! They definitely made me feel a lot better.

Can I just tell you? The oranges from his tree are the biggest, juiciest, most flavorful oranges I have ever had. For real. They are so juicy that when you slice them the juice comes running out. And I didn't want even the tiniest bit to go to waste. I knew what I needed to do....

I went to the hutch and got out Noni's glass juicer that Aunt Lisa gave me a year or so ago. And then I juiced the biggest, heaviest orange in the bag. It was love in a glass I tell you...oranges from my brothers backyard...Noni's glass juicer...it doesn't get any better than that. Hands down...the best glass of orange juice I've ever had in my life.

I have a juicer just like that! Well, almost. I picked up at a reproduction at Sur La Table. Now all I need is a bag of oranges from a friend!

I have a juicer similar that I think was my mom's. I miss those juicy FL oranges for sure. Enjoy my friend!

So lovely!

I've been eating oranges over the sink. So delicious - they taste like sunshine and pure Vitamin C.

Ahhhh.

I purchased 2 glass juicers very similar to yours a few years back on EBay, I kept one and gave one to my sister. We absolutely love them. I totally understand how special it would be to use my gramma's juicer with an orange from a family members yard ~ ! Lucky girl.

The best fruit always comes from the backyard... Wishing I had a bowl of backyard strawberries right now :)
