Macadamias and Juicing – Part Two

Really Raw Macadamia Nuts – I am delighted to tell you I have sourced New Zealand grown, excellent quality (restaurant grade) and they are really and truly raw. At no time in their production have they been heated above 45C. They are $73.75/kg. They come in 500g, 1, 3 and 5kg. Email me- they’re so new they’re not even in my shop yet.

Juicing – Part Two
Recipes - Beetroot, apples and ginger, with or without lemon or lime, is lovely. I don’t like the earthy taste of beetroot so the ginger or citrus covers it nicely as well as adding to the nutrition of the juice. The colour is a wonderful ruby.

Greens, apples, mint and lime (or lemon) is delicious, too. You can include some of the lemon and lime skin but make sure it is spray free and unwaxed. Orange and grapefruit skins are too strong and bitter.

Once you know what combinations work for you, just juice what you have and enjoy. Remember not to confuse the palate with too many flavours. If it’s a bit too strong for you, then sweeten it up with another apple, carrot or whatever is around.

Sparkling water added is a nice treat; otherwise add a bit of water, if it’s too strong for you.

Organic or not organic – if you can use organic or spray free, then that is a good idea. Considering the amount of fresh produce you can put through a juicer, it can be potentially a lot of residual pesticide. That’s worth a thought, anyway.

However, if I had to choose between conventional produce and not having a juice at all, then I’d go for conventionally grown produce.

Buying a juicer – I have a Green Star. I love it for the efficient way it produces juice and leaves behind a dry pulp. To clean it takes 4 ½ minutes. I can juice a lot and keep in the fridge for two to three days before it oxidises. It does not heat the juice and destroy enzymes. For me the price was worth the paying; a serious juicer for a serious ‘juicee’. See more here.

If you’re not sure if juicing is for you long term or your finances direct you to a much cheaper model, then I totally understand that. Upgrades can come later.

I know of someone who used to grate carrot and squeeze it through a tea towel until she could buy a juicer.

Part Three next time.
