The Organic 9 Veggie Juice

Juicing is a fun and healthy way to eat your veggies...and a great way to
use up some produce hanging around in your fridge.

There is an endless variety of fresh vegetables that can be substituted here.
Use your favorites that are available in your local markets.

For some flavor alterations you can try spicing it up a bit by adding a
bit of fresh chili peppers or some horseradish perhaps.

What you will need:
2 pounds heirloom tomatoes
5-6 medium carrots
6 stalks celery, include leaves
4 medium parsley root
1-2 ounces parsley root greens
(or parsley)
4-5 large radish
4 small cucumber
4 ounces spinach
4 ounces upland cress
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice, optional

Let's get juicing:
Scrub all root vegetables and radishes with a vegetable brush and trim off a small
 amount at the base of each. Cut root vegetables and radishes in half, or smaller
 pieces if your juicer requires.

Wash all leafy greens including parsley root greens, and pat dry. Remove
stems from tomatoes and cut in half or quarter depending on the size
of mouth opening on your juicer. Cut cucumbers in half.

Juice vegetables in sections according to type. Once all vegetables have been juiced,
stir with a wooden spoon and place into a pitcher. Note: you can run juice
through a mesh strainer to remove foam top, but typically if you stir again
once you have poured your juice into individual glasses it will disparate.

Serve chilled or slightly room temperature immediately.
Serve individual glasses with salt and pepper if desired.
Makes approximately 1 Liter.

All this good veggie pulp can be to to other uses so don't discard...
Try adding some of your other vegetable and fruit odds and ends and
prepare a wonderful base for stock. Note: If your radish greens are
young and tender they can be used as well :)
