View Full Version : Can You Preserve Live Raw Applesauce's Shelflife?

I've been doing a juice fast and have an over abundance of apples. I was wondering if someone could tell me if I was to make raw applesauce how long would it last in the refrigerator. Also if I made cookies or cake could I freeze them? BTW, any ideas for oranges that I also have left over?:confused:

For the oranges, just peel, section them, toss in a ziploc and put them in the freezer until they are needed. They will keep perfectly.

Does the texture on the oranges change after they thaw or do you use them froozen....I've never thought of freezing oranges. As far as apples....you can make the applesauce and then put it into the dehydrator and make apple leather. I've done that alot and it's great...all I do is core the apples and throw the apples with the peels on into the vitamix and then spread onto your trays. Also, a friend of mine juiced her apples and then put it into a ziplock and layed it flat in the freezer. When she wants some she just gets it out and lets it start to thaw....when it's partially thawed she drinks it, so it's kind of icy still. It is INCREDIBLE....tastes just like fresh apple juice.

i freeze most of my juices... i'm juice fasting as well and i'm enjoying the break from making juice.
i juice apples, pineapples, watermelons, cantaloupe... whatever i'm doing at the time and freeze them in jars (don't fill to the top or the jar will break). then i simply pull out the jars i want for the next day and let them thaw in the fridge.
;) so... if you did that with apples. you could do apple juice for awhile. sooooo yummy. don't forget to add some cinnamon!
oh and one more thing. IF you want to grab a smaller amount, make sure you have different sizes of jars. i use everything from a tiny jar to a 1.5L one for my juices. this way i have choice as to how much i'm going to want.
hope that helps.
