    Produce Nutrients

    Post by Durgan on Fri May 04, 2012 10:05 pm

    http://www.durgan.org/URL/?UGKGR 4 May 2012 Produce Nutrients.
    Purchased fruit and vegetables were made into juice. Total cost $28.02 (less than a bottle of whiskey).There is no produce in my garden at this time of year, so store bought is the only choice, and all my juices prepared during the 2011 season have been depleted.

    The produce was prepared for processing utilizing the complete product, skin and all.It is propagated that most of the nutrients in fruits and vegetables is just under the skin, so I decided to utilize this bit of knowledge.

    Experience has indicated that cooked produce is more digestible than raw in general. My method is to cut all the produce into small chunks, minimum cooking, and make into a slurry using the hand blender. Sufficient water is added to obtain the appropriate desired viscosity. A total of nine litres of water was added.

    The slurry is then put through a strainer. The output of the strainer is put through a Champion Juicer to extract as much nutrient as possible, then mixed with the strainer output, and stored in litre jars. For long term storage at room temperature it is pressure canned for about 15 minutes at 15 PSI. There was a total of 15 litres and 14 were pressure canned and one was left in the refrigerator for current use. A litre of the juice is consumed daily. Pictures depict the process.

    Good work Durgan!
    If a litre of the juice was heated wouldn't it make a very good hot soup?

    Indeed it would. I see little difference with my preparation method between soup and juice. My sort of obscure main thrust is by not utilizing the whole fruit the farm animals, who often get the discarded scraps, are probably being fed more nutritionally than humans. For example, did you ever observe the waste from a pineapple? My approach in this example is to utilize almost the complete fruit, except for a small roughage part, which is indigestible anyway. I drink the finished product as juice. It is palatable, nourishing, and simple to prepare.

    Compare this will the juice being sold commercially, without discussing canned commercial soup. I tend to believe that the commercial food industry and our own cooking habits are slowing killing us.

    Seldom do I see a truly healthy appearing person in my daily walk or while shopping.
    Almost all people are weird shaped and over weight. This is not confined to one sex, both men and women are essentially the same. And it is not confined to one age group. Clearly there is something amiss. I am attempting to address the issue the best that I can. Certainly with myself there is success. Over 60% of people have a BMI over 30 and it is not considered a crisis situation is unbelievable. We are eating ourselves to a painful,unhealthy demise. Christ, I sound like a fanatic.
