Momma Lucy’s Carrot Punch
For what ails you on a News Year’s Day, especially if you celebrated New Year’s a little too much. But it’s great way to start any day.
1 can Condensed Milk
¼ lb Sugar
2 tablespoons grated nutmeg (freshly grated is so much better)
2 tablespoon vanilla (use the real stuff not imitation)
3 cups water
Clean the carrots and then cut the carrots into small pieces.
Put carrots into a Blender one handful at a time until the Blender is about ¾ full.
Add about ½ cup of water to the carrots in the Blender. Turn the Blender switch to puree and allow carrots to process until they are ground to a pulp.
Remove pulp and place into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup water to pulp. Squeeze the pulp, filtering the juice through a strainer.
Put the squeezed pulp on a plate to the side. Repeat this process until all the pulp is squeezed. Repeat the entire process for any remaining carrots.
You can also add more water to the squeezed pulp, and drain the juice through a strainer again make sure you don’t get any pulp into the mixing bowl.
Mix in the condensed milk with the carrot juice, add sugar to taste. Add nutmeg and vanilla flavoring to taste.
You can add more water or more ingredients if you like, to bring about the taste you desire.
