Letters from a Hill Farm
There is nothing like freshly squeezed orange juice!
And it looks like you do it the old fashioned way too. I keep thinking "I should get a juicer" but I'm picturing something a little more modern that your beautiful glass citrus juicer. I feel inspired to look for something simpler... more hands on... after reading your post today! Thank you for the inspiration!
Yum. Just what I should be drinking to get over the cold I've had since last Saturday. I used my juicer last night to make a hot toddy. I've had it (the electric juicer) for 25 years!
The oranges look so beautiful in the bowl even before the squeezing. Fruit gives me the color I crave once Christmas has been put away.
I'm so pleased with all your comments. Kat, you're right. Those lemons and oranges this time of year are a feast for the eyes.Les and Heidi, there's nothing like fresh orange juice, is there?! If you've never tried Temples, I think you'd love them. Are they available over there, Heidi?Aisling, I've tried a couple different electric ones, and another kind of hand juicer, but honestly I like this one, the very kind my mother used, the best.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
