pomegranate juice is my favourite and supposed to be the healthiest around but I've not seen it for sale only had it made from fresh pomegranates which means it will be September before they are falling off the trees and into the juice glass again.

Hi, the fruits here are so big that they are literally bursting with juice so I just open them and squeeze the juice out through a sieve. My son is addicted to eating the seeds and I even mix them into savoury things like rice for him so although you need quite a few pomegrantes to get a glassful of juice we get to use all of the fruit but luckily I have a friend with some very large trees which give us plenty when in season.

Rice with pomegranates is really delicious! They are tasty in salads too.

Hi bignik! Never had fresh carrot juice though I love carrots cooked or raw, sweet or sour and in anything from starters or main course to cakes. How do you make fresh carrot juice?

Hi Mysdianait , nice to hear from you again , i make carrot juice with a centrifuge machine i bought a good few years ago , it works by grating and spinning the carrot and out of the hole in the bottom comes out the pure juice , it is simple to use , and the remaining grated carrot i use to make some simple cake or freeze it for later use in soups or whatever good idea i come up with , it is not expensive and you can make fresh fruit juice with almost anything you like , i paid about 54,000 Lire as i said a good few years ago and it still works perfectly , i use it about 3 to 4 times a week, and if one needs mineral salts all you have to do is centrifuge 2 to 3 sticks of celerey (sedano) in italian , and mix with my cat juice and one sqeezed orange and thats it greetings , bignik

Cat juice was an obvious typo I haven't got one of those gadgets now. The last one broke and Inever replaced it but I can see that it might come inuseful again. That sounds a lovely mixture too. I can get one with my points at the shop where I do the grocery shopping!

I really like fruit juice. Not a big fan of vegetable juice. I like grape juice, orange juice and apple juice the best. However that new V8 juice that has a daily serving of vegies in it is pretty good as well. I like the strawberry banana flavor the most.

Try juicing carrots, green apple, celery. You can also put in turmeric (yellow ginger) and jicama (in the Philippines we call it singkamas). This is antioxidant drink for cancer patients like me. They say turmeric is the kng of herbs and the best antioxidant herb.
