Making Orange Juice

Materials:

  • Oranges (two per 8-ounce serving)
  • Strainers (to lessen the amount of pulp)
  • Paring knives
  • Pitcher
  • Drinking glasses
  • Spoon

Directions:

  1. Squeeze oranges repeatedly to soften them.
  2. Wash thoroughly.
  3. Cut into halves and remove seeds.
  4. Carefully cut circularly around the edge of an orange half, slightly separating the fruit and peel.
  5. Grip the orange half tightly and squeeze into the pitcher.
  6. Continue squeezing and periodically rotate the orange until liquid is no longer produced.
  7. Scrape the orange with a spoon and add fruit directly to the juice for additional pulp.
  8. Put the juice through a strainer for less pulp.
  9. Repeat with the other orange halves.
