This is one of my favorite juicing recipes. I really think turmeric root and carrot pair well together. It might be hard tracking down the turmeric root as it doesn’t seem to be readily available in most grocery stores. If you haven’t tried juicing it before I’d highly recommend giving it a try. There is a very unique smell that the turmeric gives off when juiced but I can’t really put it into words. Also be warned that it tends to stain anything and everything it comes into contact with including your fingers. I often go to work with yellowish fingertips. It does eventually wash off, though.
This a really tart recipe as I like very tart flavors. If you aren’t like me then I would recommend only using half a lemon or adding more of the other ingredients to cut the taste of the lemons. I don’t usually have exact amounts; I eyeball and taste until I get the flavor that I like. I’ve been using an Omega 8006 juicer. Awhile back I upgraded from a centrifugal to a masticating juicer and have been really happy. What equipment is everyone else using?
