"How to Make Juice" by my son

We home school my son, and his assignment for today was to write a recipe for whatever he wanted to make. So this morning, we were working on fractions and made some pancakes and we decided we wanted some OJ to go with the pancakes. You can see where this is going...

I'm combining writing, typing and communication arts all in one lesson here(if im wrong, please tell me), so my 8yo son did the typing for the recipe part. I made him write down each step as he was actually making the juice and then brought him in here to type it for yall. I made very little contribution to his recipe. This is (mostly) all his writing. He was not allowed to use spell check and I had set myself up to knit in the chair behind him while he was doing this to help if needed.

So If you guys will indulge my son and I, we present to you: A recipe for making concentrated orange juice. We would like for you to follow this recipe and provide feedback as to if the recipe works and if not, please let us know!! (and for all you teachers out there, I would like feedback on his writing ability, grammar , and your thoughts on this assignment.)
