Celery Juicing Tips

If you have a masticating juicer, then you may have encountered some problems when juicing celery. The biggest problem is the long stringy fibers that run the length of the vegetable, as these tend to get wrapped around the auger or cause the pulp feed chute to clog. The best way around this is cut up the celery into to smaller pieces, maybe an quarter of any inch in size. This can help prevent some of these issues. Those who have a centrifugal juicer usually do not have anything to worry about as clogging and jamming are not a concern.

Celery can not only spice up any juicing recipe, but it can provide a wonderful nutritious kick to any glass. Have some fun with your recipes and enjoy everything that celery has to offer, you just might like it.
