A Taste of Sunshine

One of the best things about living in Central Florida is that there are oranges for sale everywhere. I love having a glass of juice in the mornings with my breakfast. Now that I buy oranges by the bagfuls I can drink fresh squeezed juice whenever I want.

The Valencia orange is in peak season May through August. It is,known as the summer orange. They are also called the king of the juice orange because they are thin-skinned and have very few seeds. This makes Valencias the perfect orange for juicing!
