When selecting kale for juicing, look for firm, crisp leaves that are moist on the inside, when snapped. Avoid kale that is wilted as it is too old to use and has lost its moisture. It is important that kale is washed thoroughly to remove all dirt and other contaminants. Store kale stem side down in water in the refrigerator to keep it from drying out.
Please remember that your juice will only be as nutritional as the produce you use to make it.
Insert Grid #1 into the grid holder and slide it into the feed tube of your Norwalk Juicer. After turning on your Norwalk, insert the kale, stem first, into the feed tube, holding the pusher firmly and pushing down. Continue to feed kale into the feed tube. Always keep the feed tube at least half full before adding more.
When juicing greens, always use a liner of your choice with your flat cloths. Flat cloths come folded in thirds and should always be used and stored this way. 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. When the juice stops flowing, turn the press lever off and let the juice tray down.
Discard the liner with the pulp from the flat cloths 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 ice cube trays to store in your freezer. Frozen cubes of kale juice can then be added in small quantities to your other juices.
Watermelons are in season now, to September. That means they are cheaper and probably more plentiful from local growers.
Look for watermelons that are firm and feel heavy for their size. A good melon will have a yellow spot on its underside from where it sat on the ground.
Honeydew melon is a late ripening winter melon with white or pale green skin and sweet green flesh.
Remove seeds, peel and cut into pieces small enough to process.
Nectar (Grid #4)
Fill the housing loosely with honeydew pieces. Hold the pusher over the pieces before turning on the Norwalk. Use gentle pressure and keep some honeydew in the housing at all times to prevent throwback. When finished, leave the pusher in the tube until you have turned off the Norwalk.
Fill the center portion of a flat cloth with honeydew pieces. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.
Frozen Honeydew Dessert (Grid #1)
Prepare as for nectar, place in a plastic bag and freeze. When frozen hard, triturate as above. This is a very delicious sherbet type dessert.
