apple pear juice

With the fall season quickly coming to an end (poor fall always getting shortened by Christmas season explosion!), I wanted to make sure I shared the delicious juice I've been drinking for the past few months while the ingredients were still in grocery stores.  

I received a beautiful juicer as a gift last year but have been slow to really get into the juicing scene.  But after trying the Pear Chai juice at the Green Kitchen in the Milwaukee Public Market - and realizing I had all I needed to make my own - I decided it was time to give juicing a go. 

This juice captures some of my favorite fall flavors and is sweet with a little bit of a kick.  It's also healthy and can be made with local, seasonal ingredients.  And it's perfect for when I need a little something to get me from lunch to dinner or need something sweet after dinner but don't have any dessert on hand (a true travesty).  

2 pears
1 apple
1 square inch ginger
1 tablespoon honey
pinch cinnamon 

Chop your fruit and add to the juicer with the ginger.  Sprinkle your glass with cinnamon.  Pour apple/pear/ginger juice into cup and stir in your honey.  Garnish to your heart's content and enjoy!  -- Sometimes I like to water this down a bit because it's so sweet, but I've also enjoyed it plenty just as is.  Cheers to fall!
