Juicing – highs and lows

One of those little things in life that I have discovered is the joy of having a glass of fresh orange juice after I have been out cycling. Standing still in the kitchen, looking out into the garden gulping back sweet pure orange juice, is a moment of heaven. In an attempt to be even more virtuous or rather more healthy I decided that carrot juice would be a good idea!!

So I juiced a whole kilo of carrots creating a half a litre of juice, when I tasted it, well I was so disappointed, it didn’t even taste very carroty just watery. So I thought why not add some orange juice, 8 oranges later I had a litre of carrot and orange juice, once again I realised my expectations were far too high and half a litre of orange doesn’t balance out half a litre of carrots.

By now I was running out of things to juice to try to create something palatable, however I found a couple of limes in the bottom of the fruit bowl which I added in, and finally I had a drinkable juice!

I have learnt my lesson, start with oranges then add in just one carrot!

As for using the left over carrot pulp to make soup – well that’s a whole other story!

  1. Sounds good. I did apples with carrot juice and thought that was good. Juicing did not last with me though. Maybe I’ll try it again in the winter after I retire and have more time. Have a great week.
