View Full Version : Freezing vegetable juice?
07-21-2008, 03:25 PM
Most of my diet consists of fruits and nuts and I lack vegetables. I normally get my vegtables through juice but I rarely make any. I was wondering if I could make 7 portions at once in my Green Star and leave 2-3 in the fridge for the next 2-3 days and and freeze the rest, moving them to the fridge so they melt in time.
I know freezing may destroy a bit of nutrition, I think vitamin C is destroyed not when food freezes, but as it thaws from frozen, but it would be better than none at all. Unless I'd make some for only 3 days and not freeze it?

I was planning on going to the grocery store and then a hardware store where I saw they had wide mouth mason jars (I want them wide so they work with my wide mouth mason vacuum adapter for my Food Saver to vacuum seal the jars) in 500 ml sizes, but they actually started selling some at the grocery store so I got them there.
I made a huge batch of vegetable juice but unfortunately it's one of the least good tasting ones I've made! It's a bit too spicy (I put a full hot pepper in it) and I think also too many green leafy vegetables, but at least it's packed with vitamins and that's what matters.

You can always dilute it! (With water, or by adding fresh juice to it...or even a little container of raw juice from the HFstore...?)

HFS sell raw juice? I thought it was illegal...

or make some nice apple and add it to it... make it 30% apple... that'll make it spicy and sweet!
