Can Juice be stored? Can I use mason jars?

Free for All

Posted by NHopeful on 2 years ago Hello Peeps! :) Still freaking out about this whole thing I am about to start on July 27th! I am trying to have a game plan and one of the things I was wondering is if I can make a batch of juice at one time and save in the fridge? Is this possible and if so how long can I keep a batch after I make it? I was thinking of using Mason Jars because I don't know any other way to have a air tight seal? This would also be great so I could have a way to send my husband off to work in the morning with Juice. Also, great for me to be able to grab and go during the day while I am wrestling with my little ones. I can't wait to see all the people in my yuppie neighborhood stare at me as I embrace my inner hillbilly and drink proudly from my jar! LOL! I can say that because "my people" as my Dad would say are from Kentucky and are the original "HB's" (Get it? Instead of OG's - Original Gansta's! HAHAHAH!!!) What are your thoughts Peeps on making the Juice more portable? Nancy :)

    Hi, NHopeful, Haha! OG/HB. Good one. :) Yes, you can safely store your juice in a sealed container. Mason jars are perfect. I am using large, glass, Ball jars with the metal clasp-hinged lids and silicone seals for my juices & green smoothies. They work like a charm. I make a large batch or two of juices for the day, store the juice in the jars, and pull them from my refrigerator as needed. What I have found is that my juice stays fresh-tasting overnight and up to a few days. This is also true of my green smoohies. It is also very convenient. I would recommend making fresh batches every day or every other day at the least. Part of making your reboot successful is building new habits and keeping to a regular schedule will help you succeed. Also: prepare & drink a variety of juices so that your body will get the variety of nutrients it needs. As the saying goes, "Drink a rainbow every day!"

    I store my juice in quart jars and vacuum the oxygen out with a Food Saver jar attachment. Oxygen is what destroys the nutrients in the juice. Just be sure not to full them to full or you will suck the juice into the Food Saver and ruin it. I leave about 2" space.

    I know it's very time consuming, but fresh is best. It's better if you juice and drink immediately... even Joe Cross says that.

    There are practical reasons for many who still must live there lives without traveling around with a juicer, power inverter and bushel of veggies and fruit. Remember, Joe is a rich guy who made a movie of his journey so hauling around the gear was a central focus. (How did he clean up his juicer after making his juice in the back of an SUV?). Make your juice the night before and store in a tight container. That's what I do. You may lose some nutrients but compared to your "pre-juicing diet" you are probably still way ahead. Consider this just one man's opinion. I am certain there are more perspectives.

    Joe had a RV following him while filming is one of the ways he cleaned up. Or rather his crew cleaned up. If you watch some of his videos on YouTube he explains this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sj-JYy7ujhI&list=UUQ1tideMxdptgrm9gcC2n9A&index=7&feature=plcp

    Nancy, My question was rhetorical. Joe had a movie crew support staff to clean up the juicer after he made his drink. Bill

    Joe also didn't have a full time job. When you have to be away from your house for 9-10 hours a day at a job, you can't exactly make fresh juice.

    I'm using quart glass jars as well :) I read somewhere, and at this point I don't have a clue where, that after 24 hours you have lost about 95% of the live enzymes you are juicing for so don't store them more then that. Pesonally, I work a 12 shift M-F so I have to juice my first 2 meals of the day and my snacks before I head out in the morning. The current plan is to do my 'dinner' juice after I get home. Depending on how it goes i might have to juice that in the mornings too. Today is Day 1 for me so will see how it goes :) :)
