Well, with so many fruits and veggies in my fridge that I feared would rot in vain, I decided to make a massive juice. Luckily, my mother has been wanting to start a juice cleanse and bought a dozen 8oz mason jars. What I thought would take me but an hour, ended up dragging to three! I didn’t even want to drink any of it by the time I was done. I just wanted to sip on my new white jasmin tea and relax.
So, here’s what I found:
- apples (green and red)
- beet root
- tiny piece of ginger (i found it by surprise)
As I’m nearing the end of such a long and tedious juicing process, I think I may have forced too many carrot chunks at once. The juicer stopped functioning. Noooo, I only had a bit left to finish!
So I took the juicer apart, cleaned everything out, washed it, disconnected and reconnected. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a smokey smell. Great, just what I needed! I broke my juicer, I thought.
So I decided to let it cool and take a short break. I go back to the kitchen to play handywoman, and nothing worked. How absent minded! I realized that the lever to secure the juicer wasn’t lifted, otherwise the machine will just not work.
Woohoo! Finally, I can finish juicing the rest of the stuff.
I’ve never made this much juice all at once before.
I thought maybe it would fit in several jars.
To my surprise, I had to use all 12 jars plus an extra 12oz i had in the dishwasher. I love the color that the beet root gives the juice.
And lastly, i wrapped the mason jars in foil to prevent oxidation. Ideally, I would have dark amber jars, but I cant seem to find them. Oh well, foil works!
Here’s to a delicious and nutritious juice, CHEERS!
