We noticed this the other day as we were shopping for oranges for home -made juice in the mornings. We have one of those electric squeezer things so its really quick to do - and tastes so much nicer than store bought juices. If you are not already doing this, I'd definitely recommend it - its a very happy way to start the day!
Likewise, if anyone is missing buying cordial or squash in plastic bottles, here is my latest discovery from the Leon cookbook - home made lemonade!
170g fructose (or a third more sugar if you want to use that, it's less sweet)
250 ml of lemon or lime juice
Shove the fructose or sugar in a pan with the water, and heat until it dissolves. leave to cool. In the meantime squeeze the lemons / limes. When the sugar solution is cool, add the lemon / lime juice. Put into a bottle (glass of course!) and keep in fridge. Use like a cordial. Its delicious and takes about 5 mins to make.
You can get some cordials / squashes in glass bottles but they are pretty expensive! I'm trying to find cheaper alternatives... I make this every time I see there are lemons or limes on deal at the local veg shop (strangely, quite often - I got a bag of 12 limes for 49 pence yesterday) - so it works out pretty cheap.
Anyone else have other good juice or squash ideas?
