Recipe: Cleaning-Out-My-Fridge Juice

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for my local farm/CSA-ish pick-up, and I needed use up some ingredients in my fridge to make space for the new bunch of green goodies for the week.


Cleaning-Out-My-Fridge Juice

Celery: 5-6 medium stalks
Spinach: 4 large handfuls
Broccoli: just the stalks (I had eaten the cluster parts)
Romaine Lettuce: 1 heart
Ginger: small knob
Lemon: about 1/2 to 1

makes about 450 ml. of juice

Recipe: The O-Pear Juice

Pears are pretty cheap this time of the year, and so are oranges.

Ratio of 1:1 (green) pears to oranges

Time Saving Tip: when you have time, peel some oranges, put them in a plastic bag and refrigerate.  The prep’s now done, and when you juice them, the juice will be more chilled.
