View Full Version : Freezing raw items?
02-27-2005, 05:06 AM
I love juice :), but I don't have the time to juice in the week for work :( , and I know if I juice the night before then it won't taste its best the next day (esp apple, pear or carrot), I really want to start having a daily greens drink (some greens with pears or apples).
So I got to :confused: thinking :confused: about making a huge batch on sunday and freezing it for the week........ would this "harm" the juice? would it reduce its goodness? would it unfreeze ok?
thanks for any insight.

still thinking :eek: can I freeze things I made in the dehydrater? Like veggie burgers or nuts roasts? if so what is the best method to unfreeze them? should I pop them back int he dehydrater?

Yes. you may freeze your juice - it will lose a little but it is worth it still to have it. When I thaw out forzen stuff, I do it room temp and then I put it on the dehydrator to warm if home, if not, I let it get room temp and enjoy.

Ya know, I tried freezing carrot, celery, apple ginger juice last week and it went well..tasted good the next day. I let it sit on my desk at work all morning and just slurped away-however, the pear, apple, cucumber, parsley which I normally love was not so tasty after freezing...not sure why-I saw in a previous post that adding lemon was good to apples and pears to keep them fresh. I forgot that part. Maybe that will make them better.
I am just going to make the time so that I can have fresh juice instead of freezing it up for the week.....
Any juice that is fresh made is better than none though.
If you find a combo that works let me know

I make tons of stuff and freeze them in freezer baggies, doubled, then when I want one, I place it in a sandwich baggie, and pop it in the dehydrator, then when I feel it's warm I put it on a plate, if it is a little too damp, I take it out of the baggie, and let it dry out in the dehydrator.
If it is a little too dry, I add a touch of water to the baggie. It's been working great for me.
Sometimes I add a spice or a little sauce inside the baggie and it kind of melds into the burger pattie, or whatever and tastes great.
