New Favorite Solution for “Not Pretty Produce”

Our new juicer! Well, technically my husband’s, but I get the benefit of it too! One of my hardest adjustments to gardening was realizing that produce is never as pretty as it was in the super market. Tastier, fresher, healthier – sure. But also sunburned and bug nibbled and misshapen.

I think commercial produce growers deal with this by selling the prettiest fruits and vegetables for the produce department, and reinvent the not-pretty-produce into other revenue streams. Juice, jellies, prepared & packaged items (bagged lettuce anyone?)…the possibilities are endless.

So I’ve created a new tag for my own personal solutions for the not-pretty-produce we produce….except from now on, we’ll probably just throw everything in the Breville!
