Norwalk’s Juices of the Month for March are Kale and Wheatgrass. Here are some helpful tips for choosing and preparing your wheatgrass to be juiced with the Norwalk.
When selecting wheatgrass for juicing, check for healthy firm roots growing through the bottom of the container. Remove the wheatgrass from the container, by cutting the roots free from the bottom. Inspect both the bottom of the base and around the wheat berries for mold or mildew.
When you are ready to juice, cut the wheatgrass from the base. Keep only the green part of the grass. Wash the grass gently in cold water to remove any dirt or particulates. It is important to thoroughly dry the grass before storing in the freezer for no longer than 10 minutes before you juice. Wheat grass needs to be cold, but not frozen to be ground in the Norwalk.
Please remember that your juice will only be as nutritional as the produce you use to make it.
