Safting / Making juice.


Jeg har kjøpt meg ny saftkoker :)
Den gamle jeg hadde var helt utslitt, og ettersom jeg safter mye sommer og høst, pluss at det er mye frukt og bær i hagen i år, er jeg glad for å ha alt klart til en ny saftsesong.


I have got a new juice maker :)
The old one I had was totally worn out. I usually make lots of juice in summer and autumn, and luckily this seems to be a good year of fruits, so it's nice to be prepared for the fruit harvest.


Den nye saftkokeren ble testet i går med aroniabær fra i fjor som ble hentet opp av fryseren.


The new juice maker was tested yesterday with aronia berries. Those were picked last autumn and have been stored in the freezer.



Den nye saftkokeren er litt mindre enn den gamle, men full dampekurv ga ca tre liter saft, og det var slettes ikke dårlig.
Nå håper jeg å få laget saft med det vi har av nedfryst frukt og bær, slik at det blir bedre plass i fryseren igjen.


The new juice maker is a little smaller than the old one, but a full basket produced ca three litres of juice, which is good I think. (This is a sweetened juice that is mixed with water to drink).
Now I will get on with making juice from last year's fruits and berries in the freezer.


Aronia/svartsurbær er et sunt bær, fullt av antioksidanter, så aroniasaft er både sunn og helsebringende.
Det står ofte store aroniabusker på offentlige plasser, eller som hekker, og de er en ubrukt ressurs ettersom bærene sjelden eller aldri blir plukket.
Jeg har også plantet et par busker i hagen, men de er fortsatt små.
Aroniasaft smaker godt, men bærene kan også kombineres med f.eks epler eller plommer i saft eller gele.


The berries from the Aronia bush contain lots of antioxidants and has a lot of health benefits.
Around my neighbourhood aronia bushes grow as large bushes on public property or as hedges,  and they are mostly an unused resorse as the berries never get picked.
I have also planted two aronia bushes in my garden, but they are still small.
Aronia berries also combine well with apples or plums in juice and jelly.

Looks good -- I'm not sure what aronia berries are though. I'm surprised that you don't have to stem the beries, but I guess it makes sense when I think of it.

Hilde said...

Thank you, Regina :) Sounds like you have been busy in the kitchen. It's fun and rewarding to make juices and jams isn't it :) Have a nice evening you too.

Thank you Sallie :) It's just the juice of the berries that goes through, so there's no need for thorough rinsing of what goes into the juice maker.
Hope you are having a great summer time!

Hilde, I love the way you are connected with nature and its treasures... and how you make use of them! Those self-made juices must taste heavenly! :)

Hilde said...

Thank you Anna :)

karisma said...

Wow, I have never seen a juice maker like this before. Love that you are making use of those berries. Its amazing how much good food and herbs go to waste because people do not know what they are. I have been known to go foraging out and about myself. ;-) Hugs xoxo

Det var veldig artig å lese ditt innlegg. Jeg har nettopp plantet aronia hekk og nå vet jeg hva jeg skal gjøre med alt av bær som jeg får om noen år:-))))

Gratulerer med ny saftkoker og takk for Aronoiatips. Ønsker deg mange flotte safte-syltedager fremover:-)

Hanne Bente said...

Dejligt at kunne lave sin egen saft. Ønsker dig en god fredag / god week-end:) Knus Hanne Bente

Anne said...

I havent hear of aronia berries before Hilde.It looks like what we call sloes, which I think are related to plums. Are they like plums or blueberries?

En helt uvanlig hverdag said...

Har ikke prøvd sånn saft før.
Har laget saft av mye annet, til og med geiterams. Ikke alt har vert like vellykket :)

Ha en flott dag!!

En nyttig og bra investering!
Håper jeg får nytte av Aronia/svartsurbær til høsten. Nå har jeg tre busker!
Fuglene ble med alt sist sommer!
Nå er det rips som står rødmende, og venter på å bli til gele.
Ha en fin helg!
klem

I like selfmade juice! Nothing has more aromatic taste!

Hilde said...

Thank you Karisma. How nice that you go foraging out and about, I do too :) Hugs.

Takk Fargerik :) Håper det går bra med aroniahekken. Bærene smaker ikke så godt rett fra buskene, men saft og gele laget på dem er kjempegodt.

Thank you Red Rose :)

Takk for det Lirosa :)

Takk Hanne Bente :) God helg til deg også. Klem :)

Hilde said...

Anne, they look quite like sloes (which grow here too), but they are not the same. The latin name of the bush is 'Aronia melanocarpa'.

En helt uvanlig hverdag, nei det skjer ofte at ikke alt blir vellykket, det kjenner jeg godt til! Har laget mye rart jeg også :) Ha en flott kveld.

Jorunn, håper du får bær til høsten. På min ene busk ser det ut til å bli et par bærklaser, morsomt. Kos deg med å lage ripsgele, og ha en fin helg :) Klem.

Thank you Calendula, I certainly agree with you :)
