Now, we live in a home that has 13 citrus trees. It took me a while to find another used Acme juicer for a reasonable price; I finally found this one on EBay and paid around $50.00 for it; that was about 7 years ago. When it arrived it was not very clean but with some soap and water and a few Q-tips and toothpicks I was able to clean it up and it now looks like new. This one also came with the citrus juice attachment that my other one did not have. I am not sure if they even had that attachment available in the 70's.
Here is the recipe:
Orange Blueberry Smoothie for One
1 cup fresh squeezed Orange Juice, make it California orange juice if you can!
1/2 cup Low-Fat Plain Yogurt
1/4 cup Blueberries, frozen
1/2 of a frozen small Banana
2 teaspoons Flax seed meal
Lavender sprig (optional)
Place everything in a blender and whirl until smooth. Add a nice long lavender flower for a stir stick, if you have it.
Each time I use this juicer it brings back memories of the orange groves in our area during the early 60's and 70's. You could drive just about anywhere and find bags of oranges set out alongside the driveways of the homes with groves. You would pull up, put a dollar or two depending on what the owner wanted for a large grocery bag full, in a jar. Generally it would be a dollar! Now this was for a huge bag, probably about the amount of oranges that I juiced today. That would put your quart of fresh squeezed orange juice at about 25 cents. Our area was first planted in 1893 with 50,000 fruit trees. In the early 1900's grove owners formed the Citrus Union. The citrus was marketed under the Sunkist brand.
