[Comments] (4) Oranges and the Juice Thereof: Planet Organics had blood oranges on their list. I've loved blood oranges ever since I had blood orange juice from a Tetra-Pak Susanna brought back from Romania. I ordered two pounds of oranges for an exorbitant $4.00. As a tribute to the old Romanian aristocracy, I would bathe in the blood of oranges!

Well, it turns out two pounds of oranges is six oranges. Furthermore, that six oranges when squeezed yield about a glass of juice. So I spent $4.00 (of Sumana's money) on a glass of blood orange juice. I was enraged, but then we drank the juice and it was really good. Also, if you go out to a nice place for breakfast around here, a glass of non-blood orange juice costs $3.50. So $4.00 for fresh blood orange juice is doable as a one-time thing. I wonder if you can get those Tetra-Paks here, though.

I wish! If it makes you feel better, it wasn't exactly cheap stuff in Romania either, compared to other juices, and prices in general. I sure do miss that stuff.....

So it was what--like a whole dollar?

I tried to grow a blood orange tree, but it wouldn't grow and eventually it died. Just think how nice that would be to have!

Maybe $1.25 =) Aren't you glad I brought some home for you at such great cost?
