View Full Version : Wheatgrass

I finally found wheatgrass in my area. I had to drive 25 miles to get it but I'm happy as a kid in a candy store. Enter mean person trying to take baby's candy:.............I can't juice it :( My juice just shoots it out the other end. Any suggestions?

you can VERY EASILY grow your own like i do in below pic in plastic dish pans full of good garden soil , only takes two weeks to have the grass in below pic . i just grew this indoors during winter with no sun barely here in michigan .
seeds are very cheap ,. get hard wheat seeds instead of soft . whole foods markets or bulk food stores carry them or on line but shipping costs
then you cut off grass with scissors , about 200 blades and cut into 1" peices so dont bind up blade then blend and strain out grass for wheat grass water . in below pic i didnt use enough grass so it was a very diluted batch

most the time i dont strain out grass and just chew on it while im drinking the water , grass tastes good

If you can handle it..... You can just take a bit of it put it in your mouth and chew it like gum and suck the juices out. Then when you've chewed it up pretty good and there's no more juice in it you can spit the grass wad out.

You can buy a wheatgrass juicer. I'm sure you can get one online and I don't think they're expensive. Alternatively, you can buy powered wheatgrass at Whole Foods. There are strong arguments why the dry stuff is better than the fresh stuff though I'm experimenting with both as we speak to arrive at my own conclusions.

Roman, do you add water to the blender also?
Mcster, We don't have Whole Foods in PA :( :( :(
I've been thinking about growing my own but every single plant I've tried to grow in my house has died from mold. Might be the air. Not sure.

Yeah roman adds water when using the blender.
mbncb - will your juicer juice other leafy greens? You may be able to wrap some wheatgrass into a collard leaf or other large green leaf. Then you may be able to extract some wheatgrass juice. Of course you'll have more than just wheatgrass juice. Or aslo stuff it into something like I did below....
My brother has a centrifigular juicer. And it won't get leafy greens very well. Especially baby spinach. So what we were doing is cutting a bell pepper in half, removing the seeds. Then we would stuff the pepper with spinach and put it in the juicer. It definately helped so that we were able to get some spinach juice into the mix.
