    I have a Jack LaLanne one and have tried using carrot pulp in a spag bol, but the kids noticed it so haven't tried it again. Other than that, I don't do anything with it - I haven't got a composter or would put it in that.

    The pulp from a purely veggie juice can be used as you would carrot peelings and the like as a base for a soup stock. Simmer it up with a sauted onion and a couple of carrots, then strain.

    For fruity pulp, if it seems very wet, you can let it drip through a sieve to give you a little extra juice, othewise, it's onto the compost.

    I juice a lot of fruit and use the pulp in buns, muffins, cakes anything really. Always really nice and saves wasting.
    Use veg pulp in spag bal, lasagne, soup, quiche, there are loads of options.

    Juicing Machine
    • #8
    • 30th Dec 05, 3:35 PM
    Hi everyone

    Been to Mr T's this week and bought myself a juicing machine - paid 14.99 so didn't think that this was bad.

    Have used it for the first time this pm (pinapples, orange, bananas) all which were begging to be used up - and am completely hooked and so is Mr inkie and the little inkies. We have kept all the pulp and will reuse this on top of porridge (pity we don't have a baby in the house and I am sure would make wonderful baby food lol!) adn also to go on a trifle that I am making instead of custard. Also has anyone had experience of freezing the pulp - it just seems a shame to waste if we can't use it all in one go. :confused:

    What do you do in yours? Would particularly like to hear how people use veggies to make soups in the juicer, so any recipe ideas welcome!

    Thanks in advance

    I wouldn't want to use a juicer for veg for soup as most of the goodness is in the pulp, and it's so much easier to make soup and then blend it

    would be interested to know if pulp can be frozen though

    Carrot, apple and celery (equal quantities) is a nice mixture - I'm afraid the pulp from ours goes straight into the compost bin

    The pulp from mine is so dry it's not much use for anything other than the compost bin.
    Organised people are just too lazy to look for things

    I was just wondering the exact same thing. Yay the search function worked for me today. lol

    Have just borrowed a juicer from a friend to try and see if we like it but after our first go, the juice was really gorgeous but there was so much pulp left behind!

    Is there any way to minimise pulp i.e. using bananas last or particular fruits that don't leave so much pulp?

    I thought maybe use the pulp to make lollies mixed with milk or something..

    Annie's OS tip for people with juicers

    Just thought I would pass this tip on - hope it helps somebody!

    After juicing carrots etc don't throw away or compost the left over 'pulp' instead use it to bulk out your stews. I tend to freeze any pulp, i.e. I made a carrot, coriander and apple drink yesterday and have frozen the pulp to put in the tomato based sauce I am planning to make next week for a veggie lasagne.

    Does anyone else do this?

    It feels so good not wasting food - maybe I should get out more!

    Pulp from juicer
    I make fresh fruit/veg juice every day and end up throwing away an awful lot of pulp.

    I don't have a compost heap but it seems a shame to be throwing it away - can anyone think of a way to recycle it?

    BIZARRE - have you read my thread that I posted 1 minute before you!!!

    In soup for the veg pulp perhaps? You could freeze it on a daily basis and make up the soup at the end of the week. May be smoothies for the fruit pulp.

    Great minds think alike!!!

    Brilliant idea to freeze it for stews/casseroles etc - didn't think of that.

    I remember making some carrot cakes once with the pulp but they were very dry and not very carroty as all the juice had been extracted!

    Any other ideas extremely welcome.

    P.S. my fave juices are apple, carrot and ginger or apple carrot and beetroot - mmmm delicious.....

    Or stick it in a pasta sauce.
