Simple Juice Recipes

Ideally, freshly made juice should be drank right after the juicing process. But if you absolutely need to store any freshly made juice, it must be stored in a tightly sealed container with as minimal contact to air as possible, preferably using stainless steel or glass containers. The longer fresh juice is exposed to air, the more vital nutrients are broken down over time, even within the first 10 minutes.

For stainless steel, I recommend storing juice in either the Nissan 16-Ounce Stainless-Steel Insulated Thermos or the Nissan 26-Ounce Travel Companion Stainless-Steel Insulated Thermos depending on how much juice you plan on storing.

For glass containers, I recommend storing juice in wide mouth mason jars. They create a tight seal and when filled to the rim will minimize any chance of oxidation. The Ball Wide Mouth Pint Jars and Kerr Wide Mouth Pint Jars are perfect for storing juice for individual servings that can be taken on-the-go. Or when storing larger amounts of juice, the Ball Wide Mouth Quart Jars and Kerr Wide Mouth Quart Jars are the perfect size for serving multiple glasses in one sitting.

I usually squeeze lemon juice into the container before pouring the juice in. Adding lemon will retain the original color of the juice as well as the freshness. I also make sure the juice fills the container to capacity so the juice is exposed to as little air as possible. I store the juice in the refrigerator no longer than 12 hours before drinking it if made using a centrifugal juicer and no more than 72 hours if made using a masticating or cold-pressed juicer.

    I research almost everything I buy: my blender, coffeemaker, palm pilot, my car, electric razor, laundry detergent, etc. After about 5 hours of research, I decided on the Breville JE900. My mother has a juicer from the TV guy (Jack LaLanne) which I thought was decent. But I wanted to try something different, and the Breville had the highest marks I could find for the price. Assembly was a snap after unpacking the box. While the juicer is mostly plastic, its high grade plastic and looks sharp on the counter. The biggest differences between the Breville and the Jack LaLanne juicer are: 1) size, 2) cleanup, and 3) noise. The Breville is smaller (but juices just as much), MUCH easier to clean (the Breville mesh screen quickly snaps in and out, while the other one requires a special tool to unscrew the screen), and is louder than the Jack LaLanne juicer. All of the reviews I read said the Breville is TOO LOUD. It may be a bit noisy, but it can crunch through hard pineapple, apple cores, grape stems, hard broccoli stalks, etc. Its a power-house! In summary, a great buy at a great price (I didn’t pay the full price I found a site that sold it for about $30 cheaper, but charged $16 for shipping). It arrived in 5 days and I’ve been using it everyday before and after work. Enjoy!
