Homemade Strawberry Nectar - A Better Berry Juice

Berry juices tastes great, but even with the best juicers you end up with pulp. How can you get a pure berry juice, free of pulp? The answer is surprising, because it doesn't involve a juicer, but instead relies on a vacuum sealer. I learned this little trick at the Philadelphia Chef Conference at Drexel University, and I've been dying to share it since. Here's how:

Homemade Strawberry Nectar

  • Cut off strawberry tops and pour berries into the bottom of a vacuum seal bag. Only fill 1/3 of the bag.
  • Add a splash of lime cordial and vacuum seal.
  • Press down on the bag to crush berries to a pulp and freeze overnight.
  • Once frozen, open bag and break up frozen berry pulp.
  • Place in a chinois over a large pot and strain for 3 hours.
  • 1 lb. of strawberries makes approximately 10 oz. nectar.

Using: VacMaster VP215
