I planned to use frozen lemon juice in Annie"s Salsa, however I couldn"t uncover the frozen ReaLemon. I did discover frozen MinuteMaid which comes in a 7 1/2 oz container. It claims it is indistinguishable to the juice of 7 lemons.. Is make from concentrate and also has no additive or preservatives. (doesn"t to speak if additive are provided in the concentrate).I can"t find any type of info around pH or acidity on the Minute Maid website ... Go anyone have any kind of information? Or understand where ns can uncover out if the mountain is standardized?

*****If I have to use the bottled ReaLemon (or ReaLime) might I use 1/2 cup instead of the 1 cup referred to as for in the recipe?****

I likewise picked increase a bottle of Nellie & Joe"s vital Lime Juice (not frozen) which is do from concentrate and also has a really low percentage (less than 1/10 the 1%) salt Benzoate together a preservative -- anybody have any type of info?

kayskats,

I to be afraid i don"t know about pH info. (But I would certainly imagine one significant brand of advertising lemon juice is the very same as another, so the your frozen MinuteMaid shd have the ability to be treated like RealLemon, but quick of questioning the agency don"t know how you could check.)

But together for using half a cup, you can use only 1/3 cup IF you space going to usage a pressure canner. The 1 cup is needed to give a good margin of safety for BWB. (Here I will certainly confess that I frequently used 2/3 the a cup myself, since I know I"m adhering to amounts, etc. Exactly and also that over there is a security margin built in. However that"s mine choice. The official, known-to-be-utterly-safe recipe needs a cup of included acid.)

BUT friend don"t have to use every lemon juice --- you have the right to use cider vinegar or alcohol vinegar for part of the acid, i beg your pardon I discover makes a really nice flavour.

it"s no the extra occupational ... It"s the fact that friend can"t count on the lemons or limes having actually a continuous acidity. ReaLime and also ReaLemon bottled perform ...

AFAIK, all canning recipes space tested utilizing bottled ReaLemon and also ReaLime. That is the only type certified as proper for low-acid recipes choose salsa i beg your pardon specify included lemon/lime juice. The NCHFP, extension services, sphere etc. Space all definite around not substituting fresh juice.

Also save in mind bottled lemon or lime juice have the right to be substituted for vinegar any type of time yet vinegar can"t it is in substituted because that lemon or lime since it"s no as acidic.

Right on, Carol. I"ll use the ReaLime bottled.

But currently ... Due to the fact that ReaLime (and Lemon) room twice as strong as vinegar (as every previous discussions around the amount to be supplied in canning tomatoes)

MUST I use A complete CUP the ReaLime to replace one cup that vinegar?

Anybody desire 16 oz of an essential Lime Juice?

Well, as posted above, I supplied 1/2 cup cider vinegar and also 1/2 cup ReaLime in Annie"s salsa recipe. Ns still wonder if I could use 1/2 cup ReaLemon or ReaLime. Think I"ll email Dr. Andress around that.Now I"m stuck with a bottle of frozen MinuteMaid lemon juice and a pint of dual strength crucial Lime Juice. Pie, anyone?

The double strength (assume that is the Kermit brand indigenous Florida) is rather bitter tasting in mine opinion. It may be stronger, yet that bitteress isn"t an extremely appetizing. I have never seen frozen lemon juice concentrate, just lemonaid through sugar added. Real.. Bottled products, come me have actually an odd taste. I choose my Nellie & Joes lime juice.

Kermit form was claiming double strength together well, and also that one ns tried, yet didn"t choose the bitterness. It might be the the Nellie & Joes I acquire is the constant one in pint bottles. Mine N&J ones are not dual strength. Discovered a really cheap resource last year for a case of it, yet they went the end of business..

In the other threads (lemon ok because that canning hot peppers) & (well water & boiling water bath) I"ve been warned against using the MinuteMaid (after I offered it). It has been pointed out that since it is fresh/frozen and also not "stabilized" the mountain is no consistent and also I should always use bottled real Lemon for canning, no the Minute Maid and not fresh lemons either. So I"m turn off to obtain some actual Lemon. As for the MinuteMaid? It"s a lovely autumn day right here in NE Ohio. Anyone for lemonade? ;-)Kris

Most any brand that bottled lemon juice will work. Store brands and others need to all fulfill the same acidity standards. Exact same with bottled lime juice.

Per NCHFP, all acidification testing was done v ReaLemon and ReaLime bottled bottled juice and Kroger 5% vinegar. Yes, they list the actual brand names. No cite of Minute Maid however as Ken said all the bottled store brands must meet the exact same pH testing and standardization standard.

Per the Minute Maid website the frozen lemon juice "contains the juice the 7 lemons" (and together we understand the juice of fresh lemons varies in pH) and once thawed has actually the self life of just 8 weeks since it has actually no preservatives.

Just something to consider.

Kaystats,If its brown shade or smells, toss. If its quiet a yellow lemon color, it need to still make a nice an insect batch the lemonaid. Ns would intend its acidity has kept that safe enough even in the fridge. The bottled stuff, even though is a bit greater in acid, deserve to discolor as well. Mine Nelie & Joe"s lime juice will certainly darken to a tan green color after a lengthy room temp storage in sealed bottles, but its still OK come use.

Since the company site claims 8 weeks shelf life, I"d sure pitch it. ;) It would be prefer using old, rotten lemons from the bottom of the veggie drawer to do lemonade.

Were talk pure juice, and probably pasturized to boot. As mentioned, if that is smelly or brown, toss. Lemons because that me have still to be usable if unopened and the skins room withered a bit and also bloched v brown. A shelf life for many things is constantly going to be exagerated to part degree. Perishables favor tomatoes, bananas, and also pickling cukes are much more prone to fast spoilage like many other fresh produce. As soon as in a when I will still buy off the "not as an excellent as fresh" shelf, as periodically you gain a good deal. Last week, ns bought part avacados, Hass type. Some were difficult and an overwhelming to peel deseed. The same batch i bought had actually two that were brown inside and also were way too overripe to enjoy. Now, if the lemons are rotten and are growing mold in the fridge, YES, I would toss them.

Ken - just to clarification - we space talking around the frozen juice here. This is not the bottled kind that has been pasturized, stabilized and also had preservatives added and has actually a shelf life that at the very least a year. This MM ingredient is nothing however the juice the 7 lemons (per the website) v nothing else added but water. The is plan to be frozen until use.

Two of mine favorite commodities are the Minute Maid indigenous lemon juice and frozen lime juice. You can use this both as a replacement for fresh squeezed lemon and also lime juice. They space NOT the same as party ReaLemon or any kind of other bottle lemon or lime juice. I haven"t to be able to uncover the Minute Maid frozen lime juice for rather some time and just found out it to be discontinued. I used to keep number of bottles of each in my freezer and thaw them for use in the fridge when needed. It to be so practically to use in location of new squeezed juice in so countless recipes. I"m sure you"d all love that if you tried the - will certainly you call Minute Maid to request they bring ago the frozen lime juice???
