My first beetroot of significance from the garden. In all the excitement of bringing vegetables in from the garden I forget to include a lemon or an orange to the juice. The results were a tad on the bitter side. Let’s just say that it took some time to get through a glass. It wasn’t delicious but it wasn’t hideous but it was drinkable, a reminder to add something sweet or sour to contrast bitterness. A lesson learned until I forget again.
I avoided juicing a caterpillar at the 11th second, he held on during the rinsing but escaped the funnel of centrifugal blades and dropped onto the bench in time. Lucky him and lucky me! At least someone else finds my kale edible.
Kale, beetroot, ginger, parsley, carrots.
