Inside my kitchen window

Simple, yet simply lovely, isn't it? Organic orange slices and lemon basil gently flavor purified water for a light, refreshing summer drink. The peel and white pith of the orange add nutrients that aren't available in squeezed orange juice. Be sure to buy organic oranges (or lemons!) whenever you're going to use the peels and pith so you'll avoid chemical pesticide residue used in commercial citrus production. And for the mint, if you plant ONE mint plant in your garden, you will soon see that it spreads, and returns every year!
