I have an electric juice, but why bother unless I plan on doing a dozen or so grapefruit or oranges.
But Minute Maid is cheaper than homemade and it tastes better than the lemonade that I make. I won't get a lot of practice making lemonade 'cause it isn't something I drink often. It's nice in a beer on a hot day. Oh heck, I have to go read some more about HFCS / glucose-sucrose. I really don't drink lemonade very often.

I buy frozen orange juice, but we don't drink it very often. It's nice to have it handy when sick and in need of lots of fluids and vitamin C. The best tasting OJ that I have tasted here in Canada is Minute Maid in the blender with one entire, peeled orange.

I never bought sweetened frozen juices. Most fruit doesn't need any sweetening and I have been cautious of added sugar since, um, let's see ... I guess my early twenties.

Honey is not sterile. Honey can contain botulism. The rule to never feed honey to infants is because of this.

I buy Florida's Natural orange juice. It has no sugar and is pure squeezed juice. I buy it with the pulp. I want the whole orange. I like the idea that the oranges all come from the same soil. That has a lot to do with the taste of any food. The taste remains the same in all the containers. All the oranges are from Florida and there are no imported oranges mixed with them. I do keep a container of frozen orange juice in the freezer when I need it for baking and don't have an orange on hand. The orange flavor is more intense than just plain orange juice.

Now you tell me. And to think of all the honey I sucked right from the comb as a kid.

Did you find the rosehip-hibiscus tea? Was it the same brand?

I have now checked two local heath food stores and they didn't have any brand of rosehip tea. One store had ~30 grams of hibiscus for ~$8. I think most of the flavour comes from the rosehips. I guess I better start checking the ethnic stores in my area. I'm down to 3 teabags.

You are quite right, but I was told it was sterile back in the '70s. However, pasteurization doesn't kill the botulism spores.

It's botulism spores that can start growing in an infant's intestinal tract. By the age of one year, almost all children have the protective intestinal fauna that prevent that.

When my first two kids were born they didn't have baby formula. You made the formula with whole milk, water and syrup. All new mothers were told to never use honey in the formula and why. We used Karo clear syrup.

Which is why they call it infant botulism. Definitely not a sterile product.

I have some in my cupboard--didn't look for it. I inherited it from a friend.
