I’ve had my juicer for a fair bit now – and although it is a pain to clean up since I don’t have a dishwasher – it does see semi-regular use.
I have discovered some don’ts – cucumber juice is not all that good when it is the core ingredient, actually. On the similar level, too many spinach leaves gives the juice a certain earthiness that I can well do without. (A few is enough to give the juice an enchanting green flavor, especially if you pair it with kiwis)
And I have discovered some good flavors. Carrots seem to work fantastically well in juice. Adding a couple of grapes (not many, by any means) gives whichever juice you make a tiny hint of sweetness.
My standard combination tends to be a couple of apples, and whichever fruit or veg I’ve forgotten about.
The one in the picture was:
2 Pink Lady apples
1 Golden Delicious apple
2 small stalks of celery
3 medium carrots.
For whatever reason, whenever I am in the store, I feel like I have to buy carrots, regardless of how much I may have at home, so juicing them is one way to deal with that.
