View Full Version : Apple Pulp
09-27-2007, 01:03 PM
Have recently discovered that my 6 year old son LOVES apple juice made with the vitamix and pulp squeezed out of it. Just one question…what to do with the pulp? I hate to waste it and he’s already turned his nose up at it. Any suggestions? Also, I don't have a dehydrator yet...that's on my xmas wish list!

You can put the pulp into the dehydrator and dry it until it is crispy. When it is crispy the pulp is quite tasty. There are some things you can do to change the taste if you want to like adding salt or agave etc. Good luck.

have you tried adding some water to the apple smoothie and not strain it at all to see what happens? just a thought. that way he'll get the best of both worlds. edited to add: you could tell him that only big boys get thick apple juice, and he is officially a big boy now!
you could put the pulp into your own smoothie, adding other stuff, of course.
you could mix it with chia seeds and cinnamon and make apple pudding

You could mix it with a little almond butter, honey, vanilla and whatever else sounds good and make a raw cookie with it.
Or you could make a jam with it. http://rawtestkitchen.blogspot.com/ has a Pear Jam recipe that is excellent. You could use apples instead and blend with a little honey, cinnamon and salt.
You can also put it in a carrot raisin salad or sweet potato salad (along with a little lemon to help preserve color).
Hope this helps,

Use yor oven at it's lowest temperature setting until you get a dehydrator(with the oven door ajar to lower the temp. closer to 110 degrees Fahrenheit)..
The results may not be completly raw, but you will be able to experiment & eat the apple pulp, as opposed to discarding it..
When you get your dehydrator you will then have a base of knowledge to jump start using it..
