I am asking this because I am on a juice feast for a week and I just bought a ton of produce to juice. I would hate to throw out these greens if I can juice them.
I think it is oxylates. When you say "add", are you adding them to something else or just putting them in water?Originally Posted by Auxin
'it' being beet leaves.
The couple times I forgot to add them til the last 4 minutes of cooking the harm to my throat seemed to maybe be worse. I didnt really cook them enough times to be sure since no matter what they hurt my throat. I figure its likely the oxalates.
12 minute limit is just because I dont like mushy, overcooked food.. it just happens that everything is fully cooked by or before then. If beet leaves is some sort of strange exception I'll just keep tossing them in the compost.
Little is truly wasted when one has a compost pile, lol
