How to Best Prepare and Eat Aloe Vera Aloe FAQ
Alright now we are going to show you guys how to filet an aloe vera properly. now i have seen many people do it and before today I wouldnt do it the best way possible. I am glad to share with you guys the best way to filet the Aloe so you guys dont get any of the green or the yellow sap, the aloenin, that smells like B.O. and is a laxative so if you eat too much of that stuff it can upset your stomach and it will not be good.
For you. what you do want to eat is the clear gel on the inside. furthermore what we are going to do to ensure we get all that aloenin off is we are actually going to soak the aloe in water after we cut it. We have 2 different 1 gallon pitchers of water to ensure that we dont get any of that stuff on it. The tools you will simply need are 1 a knife and 2 this is like a cake spreader thing, so there is no sharp blade on here and this is literally just going to separate the green from the gel on the inside. First step is.
You are going to take your knife here and just cut off the ends. so as you can see as soon as we cut off one end it is instantly going to start bleeding that yellow stuff. The next were going to do is just cut off that second end. Next we are going to cut off the spines on the edges. Also when we do this do you see how it is flat on this side and this side is curved up? Were going to want to cut off these spines, but at the same time we are going to want to take the blade kind of diagonally to cut off some of.
The green as well. so we are going to just carefully, cutting away from myself, cut off all the spines at a diagonal. There we go that how it looks once we do that. Now were going to do the other side. Alright and as you guys can see it is literally dripping this yellow ooze this is stuff you do not want to consume. This is going to be bleeding for a while so what we are going to do is just dunk it in our water and try to get it fully submerged, I am going to cut it off here so that it can be fully submerged and.
Dunk it in the water. what this is going to do is get some of that yellow aloenin off and actually get it pulled out of the Aloe Vera so that when we eat our filet we are not getting any of that stuff. Many Aloe Vera juice products and other products that are made and sold in health food stores are not prepared in this way and may have high aloenin content which means you will not be able to drink as much of it. In addition because a lot of them are heat processed a lot of the nutrients may be diminished. So I always encourage.
You guys to process all your foods out of your garden at your home and eat the freshest foods possible. There is literally no processing in here, we are just cutting it off, soaking it in water probably for about 5 minutes. While this one is soaking I am probably going to cut up a few more so I can have a super bomb drink we are going to make in the Vitamix blender in just a few minutes. Alright so I cut a few more Aloe, they have been sitting in there for just a little bit. Next I am going to go ahead and show you guys how to.
Filet it. we are going to go ahead and do a close up on the cutting board so you guys can see the specific way to do it. Lets go ahead and take out the one that has been soaking the longest here, well let some of the water drip off. And if you look as it here you should see very little of the yellow aloenin on there. I am still seeing a little bit here so what I might want to do is cut a little more off, or dunk it a little more. Alright so it has been about 5 minutes so we are going to take this one.
Out here we are going to let some of the water drain off. the yellow stuff has been oozing out because Aloe kind of bleeds yellow, like you bleed red. We got this guy out now so lets do the close up shot. Well show you how to use this cake spatula thing to filet the Aloe. So we are going to take our little cake spatula thing and were going to take the Aloe here and you can see it is curved up so we are going to push it all the way flat against the cutting board here. Were going to take this and carefully slide it.
