  • Wash the oranges to remove any potential pesticide residue.
  • If the oranges are very firm, roll them on the counter top with your palm while applying downward pressure. This helps break up the individual segments and juice-filled vesicles. releasing more juice.
  • Cut the oranges in half with a sharp knife.
  • Using a hand held citrus reamer, (or an electric juicer), twist the flesh of the oranges on the reamer to extract the juice and pulp.
