People have names, ya know!

Snappy comment # 2: That brings objectification to a whole new low.

Ha! I started a reply to that effect --

Alan, it's not nice to take advantage of alcoholics.

-- but decided against it.

And what possible good reason could have caused that?

An excellent one, still!

I think it was AEG, or is that a corrupt insurance company? Maybe it was "Dieter".

pmuko: LOL!

I knew some wit would respond with that setup line. . .

You are correct, sir! AEG made small power tools and home appliances. I had a rather $$ cordless drill that lasted 6 months. His name was Angelo.

Hey Dan, great to hear that you are enjoying juicing! Yes, I do have a very good juicer, that cost a pretty penny, but it's multipurpose and worth it. Here's a video of the exact model that I have- Champion Juicer .

Because the cleanup is a time consuming process, I recently found this vacuum sealed container that will preserve my juice for up to three days. I use to only juice once in a while because the cleanup, as mentioned, can be a turnoff. Now that I use this container, I juice once a week (enough to last me three days).

Regarding recipes, I pretty much always make them up on my own, but I do have a few websites bookmarked that have juicing recipes, and I can pass them along if you want.

Lately I'm thinking of doing pistacio nuts. Apparently they're very heart-healthy, according to Consumer Reports.


Alan, maybe the vacuum sealed container that I linked to above, would get you back into juicing smile.

I've wanted to make pistachio butter, but haven't got around to it. I have made cashew butter with my juicer many times (I actually started a little side business and sold it for a while), and it is very good. When I do it, I always make at least two pounds for myself, and a pound for each of my friends and family that want some, because I only do it once in a while, as cleanup is a very arduous process.

A little tip when making any nut butter-add a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to the bag of nut's and make sure that they are thinly coated. Even though they have their own natural occurring oils, they do have a tendency to burn in the juicer because of the rotation of the blade.

Dan, will your juicer homogenize foods, too? I've made ice cream, as well as salsa (with my home grown organic vegetables).

I'm pretty sure my grandma has/had a Champion juicer. They're really built to last.

Yeppers, my friend; the motor is a beast.

I forgot to mention that I keep the pulp in a resealable bag and use it on sandwiches. Maybe something to try, Dan smile.

That doesn't sound realistic.

Yup. I'm guessing it's pulp fiction.

I compost the pulp. I'm a NW hippie now.

Yeah, the blender I have is this thing: http://www.juiceman.com/ which is decent. The Blendtec rocks though. I made soup the other day. And it was heated up from the blade friction of the blender.
