Although I’ve not mentioned it for awhile, I am still keeping my Breville juicer busy. Terry and I have juice a few times a week.
Most of our juices have looked like this during the winter as we received a plethora of beets in our CSA boxes.
I found that throwing a whole unpeeled mandarin into the juicer helped with the beet taste. Today I used a peeled Navalencia Orange as the mandarin season is over. Local basil is coming into the market so I used some of that, too, to tame the kale taste.
The juices keep us healthy and get more greens into us than we would normally eat. I hate kale in any form other than juicing it with a variety of other produce. We get a lot of kale, along with those beets, during the winter months.
The berries and apricots are in full production here now. I’m buying some small amounts at the store, but haven’t decided if I’m going to do any preserving this year. I still have peach and strawberry jam left from last year.
