Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

Who decided this had juice inside?

I’d like to know who looked at a carrot for the first time and thought, “Yeah I can I definitely get juice out of that.” Because then I would like to hug that person.

Stew and I juiced for the first time last night, which sounds so much dirtier than it is.

Sleazy

Make no mistake, we didn’t go out and buy a juicer. I laugh in the face of purchases over $10 on this the day my second semester of tuition is due. [Shudder] No, this is a loaner from Stew’s parents. Can you call something a loaner if the person you took it from doesn’t know you have it? Until now?

At any rate, Stew borrowed it from his parents house when we moved because they are out of the country for a while. Might as well put it to good use while they’re away, right?

Right!

Into the juice beast went a sack of carrots, five or 6 apples and two chunks of ginger…

Action

Reminds me of this gem from my childhood:

Play Doh Fun Factory

But instead of terrible salty noodles (don’t act like you never at Play Doh!), it makes…

Juice! (and lots of pulp)

Our one wee bag of carrots made a LOT of juice. Probably 8 cups? Who knew there was that much juice in a carrot? We were a little bummed we didn’t have something green to juice into it. Next time… And there will be a next time.

Have you ever juiced? What’s your favorite combination?

  1. watermelon, mint and ginger (I’m sorry it’s winter there :-( …)

    Cucumber, celery, carrot or apple and ginger

    Beets, lemon, ginger

    As you can tell, I hate ginger. :-)

  2. I have a juicer but haven’t used it in at least 9 months or something! I’ve actually been wanting to try that exact combo you guys did! The only thing I hate about the juicer is that it is a lot of clean up for not too much juice. Mine probably didn’t make quite as much juice as yours. Did you do anything with the pulp? Supposedly you can bake things with it or something…

  3. STEWART. Rindsay here. It is currently 43 degrees in Florida. HOW THE HECK ARE YOU WEARING SHORTS AND A SHORT SLEEVE TSHIRT IN SOUTH CAROLINA (PRACTICALLY NORTH CAROLINA).

    I’ll knit you some leggings and armings… yup made that up.

  4. Guys, I can’t believe it took you 3 months to haul that thing out! I figured I’d have to pry it out of your hands when we got back. We juice all the stuff mentioned above. Granny Smiths are healthiest cuz they’re lowest in sugar. Enjoy it for another 3 months, then you’ll really want your own!
