I Amaze Myself Sometimes
Yesterday I was experimenting with the steam juicer, after doing the grapes I thought about putting the juiced grapes into the dehydrator, after all I had nothing to lose
When they went into the dehydrator
when they came out
yes they are raisins, look like raisins and taste like raisins,
I am surprised you didn't hear me shout eureka.
I did do a bit of research on line first, black grapes make raisins, green grapes make sultanas, and currants from a very small bush grape.
The pear pulp was turned into fruit leathers, rolled up and snipped into chunks for snacking on.
Today I did a crate of apples, the pulp will tomorrow be turned into apple leathers.
There was a good amount of juice from them to.
The fruit juice from the steam extractor is pasteurised because its exctracted by heat.
Taste wise it taste like the fruit it has come from, I suppose the best thing to compare it to is the long life fruit juice you get in cartons.
I have visitors arriving this evening, most of my day has been spent preparing for them, more bread, making up beds and sorting out for tomorrows meals.
