To make tomato juice in a juicer for the winter you need only a few ingredients. But it is important to choose them correctly, so that the drink from the tomatoes turned out to be delicious, and the jar with the juice stood in order for the whole autumn.
How to choose ingredients?
The main ingredient in our preparation, of course, will be a tomato, or a tomato. If the vegetable was grown on your bed, then there is nothing to worry about, such a product probably will not cause suspicion. But if there is no opportunity to collect fresh tomatoes straight from the bush, then you should immediately go to the store and choose the best quality product.
Before you start choosing, let's talk about the vegetable itself. There are more than 1200( !) All sorts of tomato varieties. They all differ in taste, size, color, juiciness, hardness, density, and many other factors. What sort of tomatoes your family will taste like - decide for yourself. However, in addition to dividing into varieties, the fruits of the vegetable experts identify the following types:
- Tomatoes of the first type have a pronounced taste, large size and juiciness.
- Vegetables, defined to the second type, usually have a round shape. They are medium in size but even, beautiful in appearance.
- Tomatoes of the third type have a spicy aroma and exquisite taste.
- The fourth type of this ingredient differs by its small size, sweetish taste. Guess? Of course, the first cherry tomatoes come to mind.
As you probably already understood, we will use large, juicy vegetables for tomato juice in the juice cooker for winter. We proceed to the selection of ingredients for the dish. Good tomatoes are fruits without damage, not crumpled, without scratches, cracks, chips, rotten places. In no case tomatoes should not have brown or other spots. The peel should be solid or with a smooth color transition. The brighter the tomato, the more ripe it is, which means it contains more vitamins and other beneficial substances.
Tomato must be of medium size( no overgrowth and no kids!).The presence of the stem is highly welcome, this is important! Its color is usually dark green, but by no means brown. The process cannot be chosen dry, this is a sure sign of an old, overdone product.
Absence of a stem is suspicious. Typically, sellers remove the old, dry "tail" to hide the age of the goods.
Fresh ripe vegetable to the touch elastic. However, too hard a tomato says about immaturity, and too soft - about corruption.
Do not miss such an important factor as flavor. The smell of a good tomato should be appetizing, characteristic of a tomato. Especially strongly aroma can be caught at a stem. If the smell is sour, such a product began to rot. There is no flavor at all that vegetable, which was torn off unripe.
The following ingredient is not at all necessary for the recipe for tomato juice in the juice cooker, however, if desired, you can add the Bulgarian pepper. Of course, again, it is better to take it directly from the garden, but if the opportunity is not provided, go to the store or market.
High-quality, ripe, tasty Bulgarian pepper has the following data. The fruits are quite large, although it depends on the varieties. Elastic, smooth, firm. Chips, cracks, scratches and dents lead to rapid deterioration of the goods. In addition, various germs and dirt can accumulate on the damaged areas of the skin. The color of high-quality pepper is plain. The skin is shiny, smooth.
Color of Bulgarian pepper matters. Red vegetable contains more calories, sugar, vitamins A and C. Yellow pepper boasts the highest content of potassium, phosphorus. Green color indicates the lowest number of calories, but Bulgarian pepper of this color contains a lot of vitamin K.
The stem should be light, elastic, juicy.
