Storing food for your Juicer.
How To Store Fruits and Vegetables At Home
For storing food for your juicer getting the most out of your produce and optimal shelf life (or fridge life), each type of produce has their own way they prefer to be stored. Halls Intl have plenty of juicers to help utilize your fruit and veg to create the most delicious and tasty smoothies and juices.
- Leafy Greens
At room temperature, apples will last about a week. If stored in a refrigerator, they will last a month or two. Storing them in a plastic ziplock bag may extend the shelf life even longer. Chill them in the refrigerator for at least a few hours prior to making juice.
Remove the dirt from the beets, and if you wash them, make sure they are dried thoroughly. Put beets in a perforated plastic bag and store in the coldest part of your refrigerator (usually the bottom shelf or the crisper drawer). Stored this way, beets will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Carrots will last 3-5 days without refrigeration, but will last 3-4 weeks if kept in the fridge. Make sure they are chilled for at least a few hours prior to making juice.
We found the best way to keep celery fresh. You should wash it, cut it, submerge in filtered water in an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator. If you are not going to cut it, then at least remove the plastic bag and store it whole, uncovered in the refrigerator or wrapped in tinfoil (this allows the ethylene to escape and prevent accelerated spoilage).
Cucumbers are best stored at room temperature, just keep them away from other fruits and vegetables as they are sensitive to a natural gas (ethylene) that is emitted by other ripening produce. If stored below 50 degrees, they tend to go bad quicker, getting slimy and producing soft spots. I still recommend chilling in the refrigerator prior to making juice.
LEMONS, LIMES AND ORANGES
Left out at room temperature, citrus fruits will dry out and lose their juice. They are best kept refrigerated and will last about two to three weeks. If you put them in a ziplock bag or airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator, they can stay fresh for about a month.
Store whole ginger in the refrigerator for up to one month, or place the whole root in a freezer bag, removing as much air as possible and freeze. Ginger will stay fresh for about six months in the freezer, just thaw in the refrigerator prior to juicing.
Wash and dry the greens, making sure they are really dry. Lay the greens out on paper towels, then roll them up loosely, place them in a plastic ziplock bag and store in the refrigerator. You can also store them in a large airtight container if you have room in your refrigerator. This should keep leafy greens like kale, spinach, romaine, watercress, chard, and parsley fresh for a week or more. Storing food for your juicer .
A ripe pineapple can last a couple of days unrefrigerated. If you leave the pineapple whole and stored in the refrigerator, it should last about 3-5 days. Its recommended cutting up the pineapple into smaller chunks and storing in an airtight sealed container in the refrigerator. Pineapple will usually stay fresh 5-7 days when stored this way. You can freeze cut pineapple for up to 6 months, however you will lose some of the flavor and probably some of the nutrients, so I would not recommend it.
Wipe dirt away with a paper towel and place upside down. Store away from other fruits and veggies in a cool dry place and out of direct sunlight for up to 5 days. Storing in the refrigerator will extend their shelf life, but will make them less juicy. I still recommend putting them in the refrigerator if not being used within a few days of being ripe and at the least, a few hours prior to making juice.
Storing food for your juicer is essential for saving money and food for your home or business.
