This week is a vacation for him and just trying make his favourite dishes. I love to drink fresh fruit juices at home or outside, here in SG they will not add sugar just fresh.

Oranges - 3 nos

Preparation Method
Take the manual  squeezer(mine is with jar), wash and cut the orange into half and turn it around till no juice is left. Repeat the same with all the oranges. Put the pulp also in the juice, remove the seeds.

Serve it chilled or with ice cubes. I don't add ice or serve chilled since we both are allergic to cold.

Notes - My observe
Do not make the juice the day you buy orange leave it for 3 to 4 days outside. Then it will be sweet. If you prepare juice the sameday it will be sour sometimes.
