Fresh orange juice is widely available throughout Morocco, and many families squeeze their own juice at home.
Fresh orange juice only takes a few minutes to prepare if you own a juicer. For a unique Moroccan taste, add a splash of orange flower water to the juice before serving.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- fresh, ripe juice oranges (approx. 1 lb. per person)
- sugar, to taste (optional)
- orange flower water (optional)
Wash the juice oranges and cut them in half. Squeeze the oranges by hand or with a juicer.
If the juice is not very sweet, add sugar to taste. For traditional Moroccan flavor, stir in a small amount (about 1/2 teaspoon per glass) of orange flower water.
Serve the orange juice room temperature, chilled, or over ice.
