Spring Produce Market in Florida

Down the road from us is a very large produce market everyday in
I have a friend who has 8 children.  We go down there together, get tons of produce and split it up. Sharing is good.  Here's to hoping this post will spread good cheer to all my friends north or west of me, who are sick of winter. Spring is here!

We bought too many flats of strawberries, which were spoiling quickly.  Is there really such a thing as too many flats of strawberries?  What berries we didn't freeze, we ended up juicing with our carrots.  Divine!!!!!!  I can HIGHLY recommend carrot and strawberry together.  :)  Yum.

This is our juicer., by the way. I think I'm content with it. It's been good to us for many years. Do you own one? An idea for you too: If an engaged couple you know registered for one, think about making this investment for them with your gift.  My daughter wishes she had one and misses having accesses to ours.  I want to give her one for a gift...her birthday is coming.  Hmmmm....


We love juicing!! What are you favorite recipes?  We always seem to go with carrott and apple, but I want to try some new Juice Recipe Books  Oh wait, check this out.  I didn't even know Joe Cross had a book outDuh. Well why wouldn't he?  (Hi Joe Cross.  Big fan here!!  ~~~Waving Hello~~~)

Did you see Fat Sick & Nearly Dead? LIFE CHANGING!!

I would especially like to get more greens into our juice. I've got my heart set on juicing a Gazpacho, one of my favorite dishes in the world.  Berries, citrus and tomatoes are fairly inexpensive in Florida for awhile.  My friends and I are going to be putting up more fermented recipes we've found in Nourishing Traditions.  I'm ready to start canning!  

.  Care to share your ideas and recipes?
What is your favorite juice?

Oh!  I've been collecting some smoothy recipes on my Beverage Pinterest page.
Share some of your recipes here with me too!  

"Nom! Nom! Nom!...*kitten burps*....Dear Watson loves cooked carrots.  HUH???

Too many strawberries!?!?! What a wonderful problem! With 8 children of our own here we never have problems like that - but then if we had markets like yours maybe we would!

Carrots never looked so good! A beautiful day.

ok, not only do you have me yearning for the fruit stands and farmer's market while we are buried in snow, but those kitten pictures are *killing* me! ;) Watson looks so much like my childhood kitty who lived to be 20 years old
