Good Morning Delmarva, Juicing, Popovers, Gluten Free, It’s Sunday!!


I am trying to stay ahead of the flu.  Believe me, I have been overexposed.  Some have it in my household…I got the flu shot, vitamins, and tons of liquids since I decided to start juicing.  Getting those nutrients directly from fruits and vegetables.  I hope it works.

I shopped for the juicer at some of our stores in Rehoboth Beach.  I decided on Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer.  First of all it is a proven juicer.  Secondly, the price was $99.  There were some that were $49 but I did not know how they would hold.  And, then, there were the ones that were $200 and up.  I am a novice at this. The third attraction to this juicer was easy clean-up.


Juicing is expensive, no two ways about it.  I usually buy fresh but when you are juicing you need to buy in larger quantities.  I have beets, turnips, celery, oranges, melons, greens…I got avocados and bananas.  Please note that the juicer is strictly a juicer.  No smoothies; avocados and bananas do not have liquid, therefore blend those in a blender or food processor and then add to the already made juice.

I love Gala apples so this was one of my first juices.


Freshly squeeze orange juice is always a treat.  Juiced with the rind so as to absorb all vitamins.


Look at the color of the celery juice.  Celery is full of vitamins and low in fat.  It is also a natural diuretic.  Something new I learned is that some people are allergic to celery.  In Europe they disclose if products contain celery.


I decided to make popovers.  I have not been too successful at them.  It could be the gluten free flour used.  I am getting better.  I want them to be light but they still come out more muffin-like.  They were delicious, don’t get me wrong. I used the pulp collected in the pulp collector to give my popovers added flavor.

Before I post the recipe, let me tell you that I used an interesting gluten free flour.  Mama’s Almond Blend.  It has white rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, sweet rice flour and almond meal flour.  It is a light flour; non gritty.  To learn more visit


I also used a 100% Coconut sugar.  It is, apparently, the “in” sugar to use.  I, actually, won it at Good Earth Market & Organic Farm, located in Clarksville, Delaware.  It is organically grown and more nutritious.  It smells like coconut, but it does not taste like it.  The taste is more like raw sugar with a hint of caramel.  Diabetics, please listen, because coconut sugar ha a low glycemic index, it is better for you.


Orange Popovers

3 eggs (room temperature)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/4 milk

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 1/4 cups gluten free flour (if not Celiac or without gluten sensitivity, use regular flour)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons of orange zest or pulp

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs with sugar and zest.

Whisk in milk and 3 tablespoons of melted butter.

In another bowl whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt.

Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until small lumps only remain.

Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush the inside of the popover or deep muffin pan.

Place the empty pan in the oven for about 10 minutes.  Don’t worry if the butter starts browning.

Take it out and then, carefully, fill them half way.  You can sprinkle some of the rind or pulp on top just before putting them in the oven.


Bake for about 40 minutes.


Nice and hot, ready to eat.


Great with honey.  I added to my raw honey some freshly squeeze orange juice and rind.  The Country Harvest raw honey came from Manchester, Maryland.  Dip or spread.

    All I can say is yummy! I have been thinking about juicing but just not sure which juicer to buy, there are so many to choose from!

    I am pretty happy with this one. This one is strictly for juicing. I am sure that there might be others more fancy. So far, I like it a lot. Had my celery juice today. haha
