There is nothing like a good breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice, but how do you get all the juice out of these citrus fruits?
These simple tricks will help you get more juice out of oranges:
The trick that professional chefs use to get up to 20% more juice is very simple: roll the orange on a hard surface such as a countertop, pressing lightly with your hand. Not too much so as not to break the peel. The pressure breaks the membranes and internal fibers and more juice will come out. See for yourself!
Cold oranges provide less juice. So another trick is to warm them up a little bit. This also serves to soften and break down the internal structure. Simply leave the oranges for a few seconds under the hot water tap or heat them briefly (about 10 seconds) in the microwave. This makes them easier to squeeze and, in addition, more juice is extracted.
Don't forget that the quality of the fruit is also essential to get more juice. Choose good oranges, freshly picked, at their optimum ripeness and juicy, like ours.
