This juice is based on a tart I used to make in my prevegan days.That tart contained Bosc pears slices and candied ginger. Pear, Date and Ginger Juice Makes 2 large servings Ingredients: 2 bosc pears, cored ½ inch fresh ginger, thinly sliced 1 medjool date, pitted (or stevia if you prefer) approximately 1 cup of water to process juice Directions: Combine in your blender and process until smooth.To our juice I added fresh ginger for flavor and antioxidants, and a medjool date to simulate the sugar on the candied ginger. Add as much water as is necessary to get the fruit to move around enough in the blender to puree.

Unrelated Note: Today is going to be a little hectic at our house.

The Christmas decorations are coming down (boo hoo).

This will also necessitate extra cleaning as furniture gets moved around (double boo hiss).

I am off to be productive and cross some things off my to-do list.

Just wondered if anyone would know if it's ok to pick of a few Quince fruits from a tree that seems abondoned near where 'my friend' lives in Steinhausen. [QUOTE=The_Love_Doctor;950661]Just wondered if anyone would know if it's ok to pick of a few Quince fruits from a tree that seems abondoned near where 'my friend' lives in Steinhausen. However just to be on the safe side, is there a friendly neighbour who might be able to say if the tree is really abandoned?

I had some Quince Jam when I was young and thought maybe I can make this at home in the next few weeks. However just to be on the safe side, is there a friendly neighbour who might be able to say if the tree is really abandoned? I hope you are all having a great day and staying warm. Today is definitely a great day to stay inside and cozy up by the fire with a mug of vegan hot chocolate with a little cayenne. We had a quick veggie burger from the freezer that I topped with salsa, fat-free hummus with cucumber round dippers, steamed broccoli topped with more salsa and fresh juice. This morning we had one of my unconventional breakfasts made up of what we had in the house.I had purchased a bag of Bosc pears last week because I was in the mood for red wine poached pears but then once I got the pears home I changed my mind (fickle I know).Those little pears have been sitting on the counter looking at me all week. I used my blender to make the juice since not everyone has a juicer, but that will also work fine.
