Healthy Fruit and Vegetable Recipes

Hi, we are a non government based organisation who works with young carers and would their families would love to include some of your recipie ideas in our magazine, but wanted to ask for permissions first if this was okay first and if we site you. Wishing you a great day and again thank you. I just bought a vitamix and I have been blending my fruit into my water and adding chia seeds. Have you ever thought about doing this, and what is your thoughts on it?

I suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and can go from either extreme art any given time or day. Drinks are the same. Would they be too soggy to do anything with? Maybe I could fill it up again at a water fountain.

Or would the fruit have lost all the flavor from the first fill? For a 1 gallon jar 1 lemon and 1 lime or 2 medium oranges is usually sufficient for citrus fruits, if you were adding mint or basil or sage I would use about a Tablespoon of fresh chopped herbs to the water.

For non citrus fruits try to use the same amount size wise. So probably a cup of say raspberries or chopped watermelon. You can skip this of course. For all the new kids in experimentation with food- take it easy!

Cookery needs testing…does it taste better raw, blended, boiled, abused? Better yet have the kids help! Keep it up, everyone! I just wanted to ask if I could use dried cranberries instead?

I did strawberry and lemon in a huge container add all ice little water let it sit a few hours and drink.

Love it with just about any fruit Sherrie recently posted Strawberry Shortcake Bites. If using frozen berries ie blackberries, cherries etc would you need to defrost them before putting them in the water? We have Wacky Water Wednesdays during the summer where I work. Come and join us for a delightful drink on on of these days! The only setback is how are we to drink it when we are at work as it need to be kept cool at all time.

What I did was take a water bottle and put a couple cap-fulls of cranberry juice in it, then I put about a teaspoon of lemon juice in it. I am trying to kick my soda habit but I hate drinking plain water, and am looking for ways to mix it up. I like the idea of adding different flavors to the water to help me not mind drinking it. It would be great to have something other then just water to drink, and try new things.

I infuse my water overnight or up to 12 hrs. I remove the part that holds the fruit and use that fruit in a smoothie. I will not miss you. Find over 50 ideas of what to flavor your water with on over at 52 Kitchen Adventures.

Cryofiltration simply involves freezing your product, you can do it with just about anything — broths, fruits, veggies, anything then defrosting it in the fridge by placing it on a filter or cheesecloth with a container underneath so that as it defrosts, the liquid seeps through the filter and the more solid parts stay on top. When we froze it and let it thaw over a cloth with about microns, we obtained a very nice and clear mushroom consommé.

This is what we now use in the Parmesan Gnocchi. He told us to freeze green apple cut in pieces and thaw it using this method. He has tried cryofiltering everything but has kept what he liked the most such as this mushroom consommé, grape juice with Kefir, gazpacho and pepper water.

For cryofiltration we find it very convenient to use a perforated steam table pan lined with 4 layers of cheesecloth. We used this technique to make tomato water and the results were much better than using micro-bags and expensive filters. You can use this tomato water to make tomato foam, tomato water spheres or just as a cold consommé that can be added to an appetizer for example.

Wait for a couple of minutes and then you should be able to peel the skin very easily with your hands. Make sure it fits in the perforated steam pan. You are then going to unmold the frozen liquid and place it in the perforated steam pan. Join our community of over , fans and master the latest molecular gastronomy techniques.
