When making orange juice, use sweet, juicy Valencia oranges.

Making orange juice from Valencia oranges is one of the best uses for these incredibly juicy citrus fruits. Juicing Valencia oranges is easily accomplished by using a juicer, blender, or by hand-squeezing. Valencia oranges are lusciously sweet and one of the most popular oranges for juicing. Fresh squeezed orange juice made from the Valencias at Harvey's Groves is a delicious, nutritious drink.

Selling fresh squeezed orange juice is what gave Harvey's Groves its start back in 1926. Valencia oranges were squeezed by hand by Roy and Blanche Harvey in the first roadside fruit stand in Florida, and sold for five cents a glass. Even now, making orange juice from Valencias still results in the most refreshing, delicious fresh orange juice. Juicing Valencia oranges from Harvey's Groves results in a healthy, citrus fruit drink full of Vitamin C.

Creating fresh orange juice from Valencias is both healthy and rewarding for the whole family. Children can help make fresh squeezed orange juice and feel proud of their own "homemade" orange juice. Hand squeezing oranges can be done easily with a basic glass or plastic juicer. To make orange juice by hand, roll Valencia oranges on a countertop to soften them, cut them in half, and squeeze and twist them over a juicer.

Many people create fresh orange juice using an electric juicer. Lots of fresh squeezed orange juice can be quickly and easily created this way. Simply wash Valencia oranges, remove the peel, and quarter them before adding to the juicer. For an even healthier orange juice, the entire Valencia can be used – though a bit more bitter tasting, the resulting juice will be richer in vitamins and minerals.

Juicing oranges can even be achieved using a blender or food processor. Simply wash Valencia oranges, peel them, separate the orange wedges and remove any pith or seeds. For great orange juice, blend the wedges until liquefied; add water if needed, and sweeten with honey or agave nectar if desired. This fresh orange juice will have plenty of pulp and can be strained if preferred.
