And juiced wins hands down.
I’m still here, Take 3 of 3 of the trial and error.
Though my last experience with juicing sugarcane presented mixed results, I went ahead and tried again.
I did two things differently. First – when the cloud of juice of sugarcane in my glass had settled, froth and flotsam rose to the top.
This, unlike Take 2 was scooped off and discarded rather than mixed in.
Secondly, I took Folake’s advice and strained it – more carefully might I add, through several layers of cheesecloth.
The result was a yellow-green glass of sheer delight – free from grit & grit.
Then I thought to test the blender method. To be honest, this does a good job in breaking down the sugarcane fibres but….you need to add water to the mix, and a sufficient amount too. Which in the end waters down the drink. Not to mention that the blending creates a fine mass that ends up as ‘sediment’ at the bottom of the glass.
Juicer without a doubt.
It saves time – both in preparing the fruit and in the extraction of the juice.
You’ll need to pass the juice through muslin or cheesecloth.
But that’s a small price to pay for a delicious cup of juice, isn’t it?[wpurp-searchable-recipe]Sugarcane: Juiced versus Blended – – – [/wpurp-searchable-recipe]
