My daughter, Danica, had been asking me for awhile if we could do some juicing. Since we had some fruit and veggies that needed to be used up, I decided this was the best way to use some of them. The great thing about juicing is you don't really need a recipe. I just throw in whatever I have....within reason of course!....and it usually turns out delicious.

This time, we had apples, plums, a nectarine, carrots, and celery. I added a couple more apples besides what is shown in the photo, so there would be enough juice for both of us.

I washed and cut up the fruit and veggies, removing the pits from the plums and nectarine, and the core from the apple. It isn't always necessary to remove the apple core, but I did this time, because I knew Danica wanted to use the pulp for baking another day. I use a Breville juicer. I've had it for a couple of years now, and I'm really happy with it.
I asked Danica what we should call it. I was just going to call it This and That Juice, but Danica said that was too boring! A google search of synonyms for 'this and that' turned up some interesting words. We quickly ruled out 'rubbish' and 'scraps'....
I thought Jumble Juice had a nice ring to it, and Danica wanted 'Clean Out the Fridge Juice....Somehow, we came across 'caboodle' and Danica decided that was the best name for our new juice.
Have you have ever made your own version of Caboodle Juice?
