On Making Grapfruit Juice

Yes okay, so it's another post about fruit. I know, I know! I can't help it!

The other day we were driving around looking at some houses (yes! you heard right!). While we were driving around we saw so many neglected fruit trees. The fruit trees were laden and there was fruit all over the ground. Sadness! We shook our proverbial fists at them and wished for fruit trees of our own. We really wanted some grapefruit. So we did what any normal people would do. We bought them! We stopped by our friends house and begged to grab some grapefruit off their trees. They gladly obliged and gave us some plastic bags to bring our bounty home in. Boy did we ever! We came home with two bags full of the juiciest sweetest grapefruit I ever did taste! Actually, to me the flesh looked more like oranges but Phil assured me they were grapefruit. Well, all right then.

We squeezed out the juice, added a bit of water and gave it a try. Ahhh! Incredible! I could really get used to this. I think we're onto something.

Today we juiced up a lot of them and put the juice in containers to freeze for later. It will be a delicious treat for any time of year! Fresh fruit juice is the way to go.

Seriously. Yum.

  1. Wow, that looks yummy! I really want to get a juicer and give the whole fresh juice thing a go!

  2. oooh, it's good ay. plus, you use so much less sugar than you do with lemonade. i freeze the juice in 250ml (1 cup) amounts so I can just pull it out, add 1 cup sugar and add water up to 3 litres. easy!!
    (be warned though, grapefruit interferes with certain medications...my sister got pregnant earlier this year because she ate lots of grapefruit!! ;) ) xo

  3. Dee, that's what we are doing! Basically, anyway. We are freezing the juice for later! It's so easy and yummy!

    Re: your sister, that's too funny! As I was drinking cup after cup of grapefruit juice I wondered the same thing. Luckily though, I'm not taking any certain medication for it to interfere with. Wouldn't mind if it did though!
