Since moving to Texas, I’ve been missing citrus so so much. I used to handpick oranges and lemons from trees around my grandma’s condo when we lived in Arizona, which was awesome, and I thought those fruits just had to be the best I ever tasted.
Boy was I wrong!
LoBlue Citrus sent me a huge crate full of their famous Heritage Reserve Navel Oranges and I am pretty much obsessed now. They are so juicy and tasty, I knew they would be perfect to make this Orange Sherbet recipe. Much yum!
Have you ever been super excited to peel an orange, only to find it’s dry and tasteless? So upsetting, right?! Well, I’ve yet to have that happen with these delicious Heritage Reserve Navel Oranges, and I doubt it will happen, because I’ve squeezed every.single.one. and they are all bursting with juicy goodness.
