Here’s something about me: I don’t like carrots and that means any forms of it.
My brother had this great idea after seeing 2 bags of carrots that I bought for mom. He suggested that we have carrot juice tonight. I cringed at the thought of drinking carrot juice. I totally forgot that we were going to drink it today until I came downstairs only to see my mom putting the carrots in the juice processor.
I had to beg my mom to put apples in there to make it sweeter. I actually was thinking she’d put more in so that it’ll kill the carrot taste, but her and my brother insisted that we stick to carrots. :[[ So I held my nose and chugged the juice down.
So here it is, carrot juice. There was no added sugar so it was strictly raw food. Homemade juices are awesome because you have control of what you can put in there and it has so much nutritious benefits. It’s better to drink it immediately after prepared because the nutrition can be gone while in storage.
As I was reading my text book, I came across this little information about juice processors. Juice processors typically have enzymes to help extract more juice out and can be used to clarify the juice. I’ll have to look into that more, but it is still quite interesting.
Oh, and mom dumped the carrot residue stuff into our garden. Yay for composting. :]
