Vitamins to fight the horrible weather, it’s fog, pollen, yellow sand, PM 2.5, whatever… With the pea soup outside, I don’t want the same on my table.
(Postscriptum, that was yesterday, 10th, today the sky is blue, the air maybe cleaner, but saddest anniversary of the year. 2 years ago… Vitamins are needed.)
Let’s take a red Kintoki carrot. I’ve added a little lemon juice. I got a thick paste in the blender, but after I filtered it into a smooth juice :
And some greens…うまい菜 Umaina. It’s a kind of Japanese beet leaves/Swiss chard. I took only the green parts and some grapefruit juice.
That’s not the custom to post the failures but this blog has really no ambition nor other objective that journaling, so why not ? Nobody successes all the time. Well it’s a false failure as I liked what I got. But that was not what was planned at all.
The raw-foodists make some cheese-like cakes with cashew nuts and that seems good. But I can’t get the main ingredient, the raw cashews at a reasonable price.
Raw sesame is easy to get in bags of 1 kg. I soaked it overtime. It tripled of volume. Then I washed the dust with clear water, drained.
In the blender, with honey and pomelo zest.
Pomelo in the bottom of the molds.
We’ve seen prettier. I really like the taste so I’ll try again.
The mix is not as smooth as it should be. That can’t be done in this blender. I’ll try with a mortar. And more sweetness would have been well.
I’ve added honey.
Edit : the taste was more fragrant the second day.
