Dancing With Ginger

That ginger root has been staring at me from my produce drawer for the past 4 weeks.  A common ingredient in juicing recipes, but I haven't been brave enough to try it until juicing with my mom this week.  I only used a 1/4 inch sliver and although it smelled wonderful when I cut it, I really did not care for the overall flavor of the juice.

Drinking an Egg Roll:
1/4 inch sliver fresh ginger root
4 branches kale
1/2 beet
1/3 head iceberg lettuce
4 stalks celery
1/2 lemon
4 clementines
1/2 english cucumber
2 apples
1/2 c grapes
Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, dance on air.


  1. The juice tasted fine by me. Anyone who has a poor sense of smell won't mind it.

    Anyone with a strong sense of smell will not.

  2. The Ginger Root! I too was leary about it when I first started juicing. But from day 1 I'd cut a little piece and roll it up in a leaf of Kale and throw it in. Now I'm wacking a 2" piece off the root and putting it in. I have come to love the flavor. My taste buds have been reborn!

    1. Ah, good to know. I'll try it again someday. Maybe with cabbage? What is your favorite ginger combo (besides with kale)?

    2. cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, ginger sounds crazy but I like it.
