When formulating recipes, it’s necessary to understand that some fruit and vegetable varieties make much more juice than others. On the “non-juicy” finish of the size we’ve candy potato and leafy greens. On the opposite finish we’ve watermelon and cucumber. Getting a excessive yield is not nearly utilizing juicy produce. It is advisable create a great stability of each juicy and non-juicy gadgets.
The chart above exhibits some generally pressed produce varieties and the place they fall on the Yield scale. Clearly, the chart is lacking a whole lot of different varieties, however you need to use your creativeness to foretell the place that produce would lie on the chart, because it’s most likely just like one thing else on this chart.
Utilizing this in follow
In the event you’re formulating a recipe that’s heavy in leafy greens, you may attempt to stability it out with one thing on the juicy finish of the chart, like cucumber to provide you a pleasant, constant output.
It’s additionally necessary to attempt to stability recipes out going the opposite method: In case your recipe is totally on the juicy finish of the chart, add some extra fibrous greens from the opposite finish. This creates a greater “pomace” for urgent. Ideally, when creating recipes utilizing a real two stage juice press like a Goodnature machine, you need to create pomace that may keep agency, however juicy within the press whereas it’s working.
A great way to check that is to choose up a handful of pomace and squeeze it in your hand. If juice can circulate freely from the pomace, by means of your fingers, that’s a great signal that it’ll press nicely. If the pomace is so mushy that items from fruit squeeze by means of your fingers, it’s best to add one thing extra fibrous to the combination. A recipe that’s too mushy might not press nicely, and will even overflow out of the top of the press.
When utilizing a properly curated pomace, you’ll truly extract extra juice from every produce selection within the recipe.
How a lot juice will I get from my recipe?
We generally get questions on how a lot juice one would possibly get from a selected recipe. The brief reply is that it is determined by loads of components. These components are:
- How ripe the produce is. Often a pleasant, ripe piece of fruit will yield far more juice than one which’s been picked too early.
- Seasonality. When produce is out of season, it might make roughly juice than when it’s in season.
- How the produce is ready (peeled, unpeeled, and so on.).
- How finely the produce is floor within the pomace. Over-grinding or under-grinding can have an effect on yield.
- How briskly and the way laborious the recipe is pressed within the press. Typically, a slower press gives you a better yield.
- Whether or not the produce is combined collectively or pressed individually. We have now seen as a lot as a 5% improve in complete juice output, when combining substances as a substitute of juicing separately.
Typically, you may anticipate round 10-12 fluid ounces of juice per pound of ready produce. In case your recipe is combined with each juicy and non-juicy gadgets, this quantity might be fairly shut. Often you may weigh out 1.5 lbs. of uncooked produce and it’ll make fairly near 16 ounces of juice, so long as it’s a mixture of each juicy and non-juicy gadgets.
