Conserve And Preserve Juice

Unfortunately, freshly extracted juices do not keep for long and will spoil in the air. What you cannot drink within a few days must therefore be preserved. In this way, you still have something of the great summer harvest in winter.

Preserving juice without a juicer

  1. Heat the finished juice to 72 degrees and keep this temperature for twenty minutes.
  2. If desired, you can add sugar to the juice. Stir until all the crystals have dissolved.
  3. Meanwhile, sterilize glass bottles and caps in boiling water for ten minutes. So that the vessels do not burst, you should heat everything at the same time.
  4. Fill the juice with a funnel (€1.00 at Amazon*) into the wrong ones. There should be a 3cm border at the top.
  5. Immediately unscrew the lid and turn the jars upside down.
  6. Leave to cool at room temperature.
  7. Check whether all lids are tight, label them, and store them in a cool and dark place.

Preserving juice from the steam juicer

If you extract juices with the steam juicer, you can save yourself the additional heating:

  1. Immediately pour the obtained juice into sterilized bottles, close them and turn the jars upside down.
  2. Flip after 5 minutes and let cool at room temperature.
  3. Check whether all lids are tight, label them, and store them in a cool and dark place.

The juice will keep for a few months this way. If you want an even longer shelf life, you can also preserve the juice.

Boil down juice

  1. Place the bottles, filled to three centimeters below the rim and closed with a lid, on the grid of the preserving machine.
  2. Pour in enough water so that the vessels are halfway submerged. # Preserve at 75 degrees for half an hour.
  3. Remove bottles and let cool at room temperature.
  4. Check whether all lids are tight, label them, and store them in a cool and dark place.

Preserve juice by freezing

Cold-pressed juice contains the most vitamins. To preserve it without losses, you can simply freeze it.

  • Pour the juice into well-rinsed screw-top jars.
  • These should only be filled three-fourths full, as the liquid expands and freezes.
  • Put these in the freezer.
