    Juicing Collards

    This is my first experience with Collards in the garden. How to utilize? It was decided to juice them. For added interest and flavour, radishes, chives blossoms, and columbine flowers were added, since they are presently available in the garden. The radish tops were not used, since they were damaged by the flea beetle.Three litres of water was added to make the produce a drinkable juice.The mixed produce was gently cooked for about 15 minutes, then beat into a mash with the hand blender.The cooked mash was filtered with the mechanical strainer.The residue from the strainer was put through my Champion juicer to obtain the maximum nutrients.Three litres of juice was obtained and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage at room temperatures.

    Good way to use a lot of plants Dugan but I'm not sure I would like the finished product.

    I like beet greens and spinach steamed with a little vinegar on them to eat with other cooked vegetables.

    I find it most interesting to learn someone from Canada is utilizing collards. Growing up in the deep south USA collards are an important food. They are cooked and with a little bit of seasoning (butter or bacon drippings) they are a delicious addition to any meal. Your preservation into juice is a good idea for you can drink the juice at any time.

    Oceanna mention beet greens. Do you every process the beet tops into juice?

    This year, I will be juicing everything that grows. I want about 300 litres for Winter Food. I use about a litre a day of various juices. I will be utilizing the beet complete tops and bottoms. I also have Swiss Chard for greens. Most of the juices simply have a vegetable flavour, since I add no condiments. I eat to live not live to eat.
