FRUITY CAULIFLOWER


As a frequent reader you will perhaps recall, that cauliflower is not one of my favourite vegetables !!! Most times I use it for soups without being really satisfied with the taste and mouthfeel.

So when I yet again received a cauliflower in my weekly vegetable box, I decided to try to juice the cauliflower as more painless way of getting ride of this much hated vegetable of mine !!!!

As a way of hiding the cauliflower flavour, I went with a combination of apples and pears (some other left-over from vegetable box).

It turned to be an OK flavour combination. You can feel some dryness/flouriness coming from the cauliflower in the juice. So I think I have found a good way of using cauliflower for the future.


FRUIT CAULIFLOWER: - 3 servings
  • 1 cauliflower incl. stem, but without green leaves
  • 5 apples
  • 5 pears
  1. Clean and rinse all the ingredients.
  2. Juice everything together. 
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy :-)
  4. Store remaining juice in the refrigerator.

LEMON MINT


It is always with great interest, that I receive the JuiceSelvKasse as one of my weekly vegetable boxes, as this box always brings me a lot of inspiration for new juices. It can be in form of ingredients, that I would never that used for juice on my own. And can also be in form of "been where, done that and no reason for doing it again" !!! ingredients or combination of ingredients for use in juice.

This LEMON MINT is very refreshing in it taste, so I would for sure make it again.

Regarding the lemon, you can juice the lemon with peel, if you like bitterness in your juice. And if you are no fan of bitterness, you should juice the lemon without the peel on.

The same remark is also fitting for the mint. Only juice the mint leaves, if you are no fan of bitterness. If you like the bitter twist in your juice, then you should juice both the mint leaves and mint stems.


LEMON MINT: - 3-4  servings
  • 4 stems of celery
  • 6 apples
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lemon - without peel
  • 1 handful of mint - only the leaves
  1. Clean and rinse all the ingredients.
  2. Juice everything together. 
  3. Juice the mint leaves in between the apples
  4. Pour into a glass and enjoy :-)
  5. Store remaining juice in the refrigerator.

Classic Easter Egg - Easter Calendar 2015


Today is Easter Monday or second Easter day, which is the the final Easter vacation day here in Denmark. So tomorrow the normal working day starts again for many people !!! but not me, as I am continue the Easter vacation until Monday 13 April.

As the Easter is getting to an end, I think it is time to finally use up the last marzipan and chocolate remaining in the cupboards from Christmas. We have a saying in Denmark, that Christmas lasts until Easter !!!

One way of using up the finally marzipan and chocolate is to make classic Easter eggs, which is a core of marzipan roll into an egg shape, and afterwards dip into the melted chocolate. You can easily twist the taste with elder flower cordialnougat and liquorice or plenty of liquorice.

Classic Easter Egg: - 15 pieces
  • 300 g marzipan
  • 100-150 g dark or milk chocolate
  1. Divide the marzipan mass into 15 pieces and roll them into egg shape.
  2. Melt the chocolate - take the time and make a proper tempering of the chocolate.
  3. Coat the marzipan eggs with chocolate
  4. Decorate the marzipan eggs
  5. Let the chocolate coating settle, before they are placed in tins.
