    Default Real Juice

    http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?POCBQ 17 November 2008 Real Juice

    Making juice from available produce, cranberries, pineapple, oranges, limes and muskmelon. This will be about a weeks supply for one person. The texture is decided by the amount of water added when blending. As an exercise compare this to the concoction sold in Supermarkets under the guise of being called juice. Cost about $12.00 Cdn.

    Great idea! And I use the pulp for flavoring breads and basting meats (sans seeds/pits, of course).

    There is no pulp left over in the blending method. I have found even a few seeds can be reduced such that one can drink with no problems, somewhat depending upon the time, and water added when blending.

    I use a juicer and just make fresh every serving, to avoid the loss of vitamins (specifically A and C) that occur when juice is left in the fridge. I give the pulp to the finches and chickens.

    Just recently discovered a site called "juicing for parrots," so I'm going to have to see how my "big" birds feel about sharing the morning liquid breakfast!

    Interesting, I've always made it fresh...didn't think it would keep well. I think I'll pick up some extra produce next week so I can try this...it's getting harder and harder to wake up early to make it as it gets colder out

    Making fresh is probably preferable, but one still has to keep the unused fruit in the refrigerator, depending upon what is utilized. I find in the sealed jars there is little deterioration, and the convenience is helpful. Most of mine is used up within four days, depending upon the amount made.

    I make fruit smoothies most mornings, out of fresh and frozen fruit and a little soy milk. I get literally tons of fruit free every year, so a lot goes into my freezer and that seems like a good thing to do with it.

    I'm looking to get a juicer. Living alone I have more waste of fruits and veggies than I like. I like the idea of using my overflow in this way. I'm excited to get started making my own juice. I like my morning smoothie and alot of times I'm rushed at lunch so this would be a perfect solution.
