I recently bought 80 pounds of oranges. Yes. 80 POUNDS. No I'm not a crazy. (Hopefully) I've mentioned before that we don't buy regular juice so any added juices we want for meals or snacks we have to make ourselves. Here's what I do to store all that juice!
I started with organic oranges. Make sure you wash your oranges no matter if you use organic or not.
( I have a Juiceman Citrus Juicer)
Pour the fresh juice into ice cube trays.
Yes, it smells amazing, Yes, you are more than welcome to have a taste test.
Then after they are frozen, I pop out the orange juice cubes and keep them all in a gallon freezer bag. Each time I make smoothies I can add in a couple or if we want a glass of fresh orange juice just put a few in a glass, thaw, and enjoy!
Not sure what to do with all the leftover peels? Put water in a saucepan and add the orange peels. Simmer on a low heat and make your house smell pretty. 🙂
