A Bargain ?
« on: May 29, 2008, 07:48 »
For better or worse, i've just purchased a commercial vegetable juicer. Other than making carrot juice and the like, I havent got a clue what to do with it.
I've got it at such a very reasonable price that I couldn't resist it. I havent got a clue about bottling and preseving the once extracted juice etc. It seemed like agood idea at the time, any help and advice of a practical nature would be much appreciated, surely there must be some mileage in it . :D

basic juices normally have an apple or carrot base.

my fave is 80% beetroot to 20% apple.  my juicer was the cheapest going and i found i had to put it through a coffee filter because i prefer my juices non lumpy and bity.

but othe than that i tend to make my own mixes.  my beetroot one seemed to keep fine for up to a week in the fridge.

great way of using up scraps of fruit and veg too.

there are loads of books on juicing - i got mine from ebay or charity shops.

I bought one and it was total kerrap!  A Kenwood, which usually make good stuff so I was unpleasantly surprised.  Going to make do with the blender I've already got  :D

I found a site on the web, some guy who writes all the juicing books. Looks interesting but can't remember what it was called. Doh  :(
