This time of the year, one of our favorite treats ripen in Florida. They are called Honeybell Oranges. They are different than your typical oranges in that the juice that flows through them is very abundant. In fact, bear with me, but the best way to eat them is leaning over the kitchen sink with towel and running water. This is certainly nothing to serve to company!

They make excellent juice also. The only problem is that the time they are available is short-lived, only during January, and they are a little more expensive than regular oranges. We bought 1/4 bushel which turned out to be 16 oranges for $7. Not too bad for this once a year treat. I wish I could toss one to each and every one of you.

  1. Hi Susan. I wish you could toss an orange this way too. They look so sweet and juicy.
