Turkish Carrot Juice

When we were in Turkey we noticed juice bars everywhere serving up a purple mix, which we assumed was beetroot juice. Well, it turns out this was actually ‘fermented carrot juice’ made from a purple type of carrot and other tempting ingredients like bulgur wheat and hot pepper. When we saw a bottle in a supermarket we couldn’t resist trying it out, although after this taste test we’re not sure we’ll rush to buy another bottle!

    Strangely enough, I bought 2lbs of purple carrots at the Halifax Market in November. They’re tasty, though not really any different from orange carrots except that when you peel and dice them they turn your hands purple instead of orange.
    I’m not sure I’d go as far as to try Purple Carrot Juice though …hot, or not!

    I’ve just sampled fermented carrot juice. I bought a small bottle of it in Altinkum. I am so glad that I bought a small bottle of it. It is vile! It smells vile and leaves a nasty after taste. The only thing in it’s favour is that it is cheap so folk tasting it for the first time will not have wasted a lot of money.

    I am a Turkish guy and I used to drink fermented carrot juice (salgam as its Turkish name) since i was a child. I can tell it does so differ its taste between homemade ones and sold in markets. The most common brand sold in market (as i see in your video you are drinking ..) tastes and smells like sewer! i cant even drink it a little bit of it. if you want to try its taste, its famous region is middle east mediterrenean region (Adana, Mersin. esp.) If you have to buy it then try different brands. You can notice the taste between them. If its taste (and smell) is too salty or like sewer its not good.

  18. The very core of your writing whilst sounding agreeable at first, did not really settle properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer but just for a short while. I however have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be impressed.

  21. My spouse and i got contented that Albert managed to finish off his preliminary research out of the ideas he gained in your site. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving for free things which often other folks could have been trying to sell. And we also fully understand we need the writer to give thanks to for that. The main illustrations you have made, the straightforward website menu, the friendships you will assist to foster – it is many great, and it’s letting our son in addition to the family feel that that issue is interesting, and that’s incredibly pressing. Many thanks for the whole thing!

    Singapore is really fascinating for its multilayered cultural tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India and also every little thing in between, there’s so much to experience and also find here – its vibrant shades and rich background makes every corner an amazing experience – foodies should certainly visit! If that is something that talks to you too then Singapore should not be missed out on as your following traveling location! Hawker Centres in Singapore use an impressive variety of local dishes. Don’t miss attempting Hainanese Poultry Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were impressive – I particularly admired Supertree Grove as well as Cloud Woodland – they truly took my breath away! The light show in the evening was truly exciting and also an outright must-see! Singapore provided such an extraordinary blend of futuristic design as well as lush vegetation – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is truly outstanding to find! Singapore’s public transportation is superior! From its efficient city train system and also easy traveling with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for relaxation – which flaunts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and also much more destinations! – their public transport has actually set new standards. Fish tank, attractive beaches, as well as various other enjoyment for the whole family members make Singapore an superb method to spend a day. Don’t miss Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which integrates art, scientific research, and modern technology in an incredible mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were truly wonderful; with interactive displays and exciting display screens producing an unforgettable trip – absolutely worth a check out! I was absolutely shocked at Singapore’s incredible purchasing scene! From high-end shopping malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s lively markets there absolutely is something below for any shopaholic to experience! Make sure to leave some space in your bag! I found Singapore Zoo one of the finest zoos I’ve seen; it’s open-concept enclosures and also immersive environments developed a real wildlife experience, not forgetting Night Safari for included exhilaration! Singapore’s multiculturalism is another drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, and also Western impacts can be seen almost everywhere from architecture to cuisine; producing a remarkable fusion!
