As mentioned in this weeks CSA video, I love the style and easy going yet informative nature of the book Raw Food real World by Sarma Melngailis and Matthew Kenny. My favorite part about the book is the juice section, not surprising if you follow this blog and have noticed my obsession with experimenting with new ways to drink my greens. Their Spicy Skin Saver recipe was the instigator for some recipe testing in my kitchen. Their recipe calls for 6 cups of grapes with seeds to bring the benefit of the grape seed oil. Since I can’t seem to get my hands on organic grapes that have full sized seeds, I opted to sweeten my knock off with apples and add some organic grape seed oil. If I ever get to try this drink as it was originally intended, I will report back, but even my version came out tasty, and this is from a gal who is not the biggest radish fan.
