Miss piggy did not come with the juicer. B got it for me separately and he named her Sir Oinks A Lot. LOL! She's still cute and if you guys don't know already, I collect pigs. Stuffed toy pigs that is! HAHA! I can't help that I was born Year of the Pig either.
This is not your regular Cuisineart Juicer but more of a heavy duty type of juicer complete with a jug and a pulp separator. The blades are heavy duty too. Don't let the picture fool you. It's actually ginormous in person, but it gets the job done. I just love it!
As soon as I got home, I immediately opened my new toy and tested it. I keep plenty of organic apples in my fruit basket so I thought of making fresh apple juice.
B had a different idea, on the other hand. He wanted Apple Martini instead (just mix apple juice, vodka, and apple sour). I'm telling you, there is nothing better tasting than a freshly made apple juice. It's sweet as it is already. I added a little bit of lemon for some tang and zest. It stil turned out good regardless.
While B was sipping on his Apple Martini, I was sippin on my fresh apple juice. The only pain is cleaning the juicer afterwards. But I didn't mind. I also saved the apple pulp and later made some tzatziki sauce with it. Forgot to take pic but it came out delish sans the sliced cucumbers.
Over all I am a happy little brat. I can't wait to make more juices this weekend. lol! And I can't wait for another toy to come so I can show to you guys. He! He!
Hope you have a great Tuesday. Bisous, Contessa
