Even though I'd decided that I did not like beets I'd always been drawn to their color. How could something so bright, so beautiful not be enjoyable. I think it's the color that got me to give them a try again a few years ago.
Where am I going with this post you ask? Remember my juicer?
Brace yourself - fresh beet juice! Okay, not exactly straight beet juice but a mixture of juices. That's right - a mixture of beets, oranges and a small amount of ginger.
I followed a recipe from The Big Book of Juices. The juice was a beautiful deep red.
Okay so it was beautiful but the big question is - how did it taste? Well to be honest I'm not sure I'll be rushing out to make the exact same recipe but what I discovered was that beet juice has possibilities! I liked the sweet earthy flavor of the beet. I can see me mixing it with pears, apples or another combination. I'll keep experimenting and keep you posted!
