Food Experiment: What to do with juicer pulp

I have friends who are into juicing. I wanted to do the same. I seldom eat vegetables. They say that if you can’t eat them, drink them.

In this experiment, I used three carrots, two cucumber and 1 apple.

It yielded this amount of juice and 2 cups of pulp.

I also tried juicing last December and I was left with pulp that I made into carrot cupcake. Since I broke my oven, I can no longer use the pulp for cupcake.  I decided to make fish balls!  I grated two strips of broiled cream dory and mixed them into the pulp. I added one egg, around 3 tablespoons of flour, salt and pepper.   I used my clean bare hands to combine everything well and started to roll them into balls.

These were deep fried and skewered on a stick.

Eating fishball is not complete without the sauce. It is not just any sauce. It must be manong’s fish ball sauce. I found the recipe here. Dig in!

The verdict:
1. My aunts love the fishball but it is a little soft. They said I need to add more flour or something to keep it firm. Bread, perhaps? Fish, perhaps? There are more carrots than fish in the recipe.
2. The sauce is a little watery. I wanted the stickier one. Maybe I should add more cornstarch or cook it longer. I think I have been simmering it for more than an hour already.

I wonder what the fishball would taste like when I start juicing ampalaya. Hehe!
