Then I was blessed with a vita mix. Yes it is expensive. However I think it is worth it if you want to do a lot of juicing ..

The ninja is a whole foods juicer. It leaves the best nutrients in then drinks which is the pulp. I do juices and put whole fruits and veggies and love It. You weren’t deceived at all. You just need to research and such.

I sprinkled some cinnamon on and it was delicious:) Nice surprise. I’m guessing the fact that my apples were getting on the mushy side prevented me from being able to strain much juice (80% of what I had was an apple sauce consistency, very little juice). It was good though.

And, by straining it, you’re getting rid of the fiber.
Just made gala apple, red pepper and ginger smoothie. Kind of chunky, but pretty tasty.
I just quartered 2 apples, one red pepper, and a little hunk of (okay this was peeled) ginger and tossed them in for about 2 minutes with a half cup of coconut water. I half slurpped, chewed it.
Made it right after my batch of date, cranberry, blueberry almond and coconut drops.
Thanks! This site is fun.

Sounds delicious and you’re right, it sounds like it would be a great fruit leather.

Thanks for sharing your tips!

This year I came up with a new version of pear honey. Most of the recipes I read called for chopping up the pears, cooking until soft, and then trying to mash the fruit until it broke down. Some said they took the cooked pears and let them cool then ran through a blender. I decided to take the more direct approach and puree the fruit right from the start. I blended it until it had reached the consistency of baby food. I pealed and cored enough pears to make 8 cups of puree. I added a 20 oz. can of pineapple, juice and all to one of the blendings to easily puree it with the pears. Then I added 4 cups white sugar and 4 cups brown sugar. This makes it very sweet, so start with half and add to taste. I also made a few batches using half the sugar and half ‘Stevia by the cup’ for my diabetic husband’s benefit. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often until it starts to thicken. Turn heat to low and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until it reaches the desired consistency. If you don’t want to stir that long (about an hour or two) you can put it in a slow cooker with the lid propped open to allow the steam to escape, or put it in the oven on low, no lid, and stir every 15-20 minutes. Then can as usual, with sterile jars and water bath canner. It is fantastic on toast, waffles, ice cream, etc. with a distinct sweet pear taste.
This recipe would also make a great leather after cooking down a bit to thicken and either using a dehydrator or spreading on a large cookie sheet and drying in the oven on low heat for several hours. For the more rustic types, you can build a ‘cage’ with screening to protect the fruit from bugs and place the cookie sheet(s) inside and lay out in the hot summer sun for several days until dried out.
I’ve made apple sauce and apple butter in much the same way. There are many recipes for each on the web, but in all cases, it’s easier if you puree the fruit first.

I have filled my freezer with sauce. This idea has been great. I was able to make 2 quarts of “juice” (or should I call it cider? ) with a peck of apples. Thank you!
