ISO: Beet Juice

I want to make Massimo Capra's famed beet risotto but the recipe calls for Beet juice. Any idea where I can find that downtown? Thanks.

  1. Downstairs in the St. Lawrence Market is a juice vendor that should be willing to juice up some beets for you.

    1. When I need fresh juice for a dinner party, I go to Juice for Life at Bloor and Spadina. I bring my own mason jars and they even give me a discount for bringing them. They've been very accomodating.

        I've been told that Pusateri's at Avenue Road and Lawrence carries it. But better confirm first.

        p.s. It's funny because as soon as I read your heading, I thought to myself I betcha East of Yonge is making Massimo's risotto. By the way, I take it you own a copy of his One Pot Cooking....I know that this should probably be moved to Home Cooking but I am curious what you think of it? I find the directions are not always clear and there are many details left out. Have you made anything of interest from the book? I must admit I've only tried a few things and they were just okay. I'd much rather dine at Mistura.

          Thanks for the advice! I don't know why I didn't think of Juice for Life or other health food stores....

          But yes millygirl, I do find the directions to not be the best...maybe that's the secret to getting us to keep going back to Mistura - other than it's fantastic of course!

            Welll good luck with it East of Yonge. Let me know if it tastes as good as Mistura's does. Maybe I will attempt it.

      2. Essence of Life in Kensington Market (56 Kensington, where it meets with St Andrews St.) has some. I assume other large health food stores would stock it as well (Tutti Frutti up the street from Essence of Life or The Big Carrot).
