I got a juicer for Christmas and I’m getting ready to play with it! Sweet!
This isn’t my first attempt with my juicer. I got excited Christmas day and juiced a few oranges and a carrot we had lying around. THAT was interesting. This time I purposefully went out and bought some fruit to experiment with. The selection wasn’t as big as I was hoping, however I think I got some good stuff.
Two tangelos, one red delicious apple and about 3/4 lb of pineapple.
Two tangelos, one red pear and about 3/4 lb of pineapple.
I had one pear and one apple leftover. One trick I did with my juicer which may work for yours is to put a plastic bag where your pulp is dispensed. This makes for super easy clean up!
Instead of using the plastic cup to empty the juice into I used my handy mason jars instead. The smaller two were perfect for the single apple and pear that I had left over.
The juice was thicker than I imagined it would be. It’s definitely something I see myself doing OFTEN. I think the apple/pineapple/tangelo combination is my favorite of the bunch. I was especially interested in the pear juice. I’ve never had it before. The fruit alone is super tender and sweet.
While I was cleaning my machine I let the juice sit so that most of the liquid settled at the bottom then skimmed the top. I left some of the fuzz though. I added a few cubes of ice and filled the jar to the bottom of the brim with water then shook it up nice and good. I imagine these would keep for a few days at least. I’ll probably never find out though. 🙂
