exciting news: i've obtained a fancy pants juicer.
it takes up a large corner of my kitchen counter, but i love it.
my favorite simple concoction thus far:
3 large sweet carrots, fresh from the farmers market
1 thumb sized chunk of young ginger*
2 valencia oranges
top with a sprig of mint (or heck, you can juice that too!)
young ginger is less pungent, but just as flavorful as "old" ginger. it's shinny, white, and looks like unwrinkled ginger.
