Today I... Juiced.
16 Jan 2011

I started up a CSA delivery again (Full Circle), after a break for the summer farmer's market season, and I have yet to get quite into the swing of using it all before the next box shows up. Apples, pears, kiwis and spinach were starting to accumulate, so I pulled out my juicer for a tasty treat today. I got the juicer (this breville one) for a shoot, and don't put it quite to the use I should since it lives downstairs in the appliance dungeon. Once I remember that I have it, I'm always glad that I pulled it out.

I think you could pretty easily pass this juice off as "kiwi" juice for the color if your family grimaces at the thought of spinach in their juice. I used 3 apples, 2 pears, 3 kiwi and 1 to 2 cups of spinach (including the stems). On the kiwis, I just chopped them in half and tossed them in the juicer. I was a little afraid that the skin might make the juice a bit weird, but it was fine. The mesh strainer in the juicer pretty much filters all of that out (of course, it also filters out a lot of the good fiber you get from the fruit).
