Norwalk’s Juice of the Month for January is Mixed Green Juice with carrots, celery, parsley, and spinach. Here are some helpful tips for juicing and storing your mixed green juice.

Carrots should be at room temperature. Insert Grid #2 into the grid holder and slide it into the feed tube of your Norwalk Juicer. Hook the bag onto the knob on the front of the housing. Bags should only be filled to one third. After turning on your Norwalk, insert the first carrot into the feed tube. Use the pusher to push the first carrot halfway through the feed tube. Add the next carrot into the feed tube, gripping it firmly and pushing down. Using the pusher, continue to feed carrots into the feed tube, always allowing at least half of the feed tube to be full before adding more, to avoid throwback. Bags come folded in thirds and should always be stored that way. Fold the bag into thirds now, keeping the pulp in the center third. Place the folded bag onto the center of the juice tray.

Repeat these steps for the second bag. Always juice with 2 bags and check that the juice tray is centered on the press plate.

Turn on your Norwalk, and turn the press lever to press your juice. Do not let the tray sit fully pressed for longer than 10 seconds, before turning the press lever off and letting the juice tray down. Turn off the Norwalk.

Empty the pulp from the bags into the trash and repeat the juicing process until you’ve juiced all of your carrots.

When you are ready to juice the greens, turn off the motor and change the grid to Grid 1. Using thoroughly washed, dried, and refrigerated greens, feed the greens into the feed tube, always allowing at least half of the feed tube to be full before adding more, to avoid throwback.

When juicing greens, always use a liner of your choice for your juice cloths. Scoop 1 cup of pulp into the center third of a flat cloth, then fold the cloth into thirds, keeping the pulp in the center third. Place the folded cloth onto the center of the juice tray.

Repeat these steps for the second cloth. Always juice with 2 cloths and check that the juice tray is centered on the press plate.

Turn on your Norwalk, and turn the press lever to press your juice. Do not let the tray sit fully pressed for longer than 10 seconds, before turning the press lever off and letting the juice tray down. Turn off the Norwalk.

Empty the pulp from the flat cloths into the trash and repeat the juicing process until you've used all of the pulp you have made.

Juice needs to be stored quickly to stay fresh and reduce oxidation. Pour into small glass jars for storing in the refrigerator, leaving only enough room at the top of the jar for the lid. This ensures there is limited oxygen in the jar, and will keep your juice fresh longer.

If freezing, leave 3/4 (read as “3 quarters”) to an inch of room in the top of the jar for expansion. Mixed greens juice will store in the back of the freezer for 30-60 days.
