Time to dust off the juicer and turn up the beet! This is our absolute favorite juice. It has a full-bodied flavor filled with tangy sweet goodness. If you are thinking ewww beets. Hear us out for a moment. It is good, really good. At South Shore Kitchen we whip up a batch every few months. When I have that first sip I my heart skips a beet. It is delicious!
You may still be thinking ewww….beets! Yes, beets. Often you hear beets described as having an earthy flavor which everyone knows is the polite way to say they taste like straight dirt. Our first time making this recipe we washed our beets and threw them whole into the juicer. Our glorious crimson beet juice was expelled. I excitedly took my first sip and was like ewww, this is dirt juice! Mama M loved it and I questioned everything I knew about her. Clearly, she wasn’t going to be helpful in our beet juice journey having no other choice I turned to my old pal Google. Soon we were informed if you want to cut down
the earthy flavor you peel beets before juicing and it works! I wish we could send thanks to original source of information, but it was so long ago we’ll have to settle for sending good kitchen vibes to whomever put this little gem of information out into the world. Peel the beets!
Beet berry pear juice is a great recipe for fall and winter. The harvest and availability of beets and pears overlaps nicely. It has a full-bodied flavor that pairs well with the change of seasons. As the availability of quality summer fruits winds down it’s a nice change of pace. Holding on to the fruity flavors of summer but also hyping you up for summer season. It’s a win-win!
