Re: apple juice

Vigo do an additive to stop the oxidisation. I have just invested in a steam jucier from them, and saw it on the site. I am going to have a go at making juice.

Re: apple juice

Indy, the juice is dark because it is getting oxidised, nothing you can do about it. With commercial apple juice I assume they can crush the apples and extract the juice within machines so that it never comes in contact with the air.

I do have a large pond but they seem to be equally happy in an old washing up bowl that they found full...

Re: apple juice

Have headed into apple juice territory, just a quick question, mine seems rather dark, is that down to the type of apples? the fact that it is not commercial apple juice or do I need to add anything to it?

Many thanks
