    Blueberry Juice

    Post by Durgan on Wed Jul 31, 2013 10:49 pm

    http://www.durgan.org/URL/?MHLZF 31 July 2013 Blueberry

    Thirty five pounds of blueberries were picked from a commercial farm. Kent Kreek Berries is a scenic family blueberry farm close to Simcoe, ON, near the North shore of Lake Erie.The berries were excellent quality and about 20 litres were picked or 35 pounds. The berries were processed into 25 litre jars of juice. Each jar contains 1.4 pounds of berries. Cost per pound is $2.60. Each litre of juice costs $3.60.The berry farm is protected from birds utilizing a CO cannon and another area with speakers emitting predatory bird calls. Not 100% protection but sufficient.

    The blueberries were covered with water and cooked and beat into a slurry using a hand blender. There is no cellulose in blueberries so straining is not necessary, simplifying the juicing process. Twenty five litres of excellent juice was obtained. The jars were Pressure Canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage. Pictures depict the process.

    I didn't get enough blueberries for juicing but I am still picking red currants and juicing them. Black berries are changing colour now and will soon start riping. The grandsons are enjoying all my berries.

    Do you use a similar juicing method as mine? Currants make a great juice, but currants are a misery to pick.

    I use a steam juicer. Very different from yours.
