Freezing Satsuma Juice?

HGFzone8October 13, 2012

Can you freeze Satsuma juice? I have a Brown Select that is loaded this year. I freeze my Meyers juice but didn't know on the satsumas.

I don't see why not, HGF. I don't think mandarin juice gets bitter in the refrigerator, like navel orange juice does, so I would freeze away! I just had some fresh squeeze Gold Nugget mandarin juice last Friday, and oh boy was that off the hook good.

Yes, you can freeze it. As is true with all citrus juices, if you don't pasteurize it first or treat it with enzymes, it will lose its "cloud" on thawing -- the pulp will quickly float on clear serum-like liquid. But just stir or shake it up, and it's "normal" again.

IMHO only the Meyer does not separate on thawing; but then, the Meyer is exceptional in so many ways.

That is great news. I want to work on satsuma recipes as well.

Thanks everyone.

Satsuma freezes very well, I still have a little bit from last year. It still taste pretty good.

I freeze mine in gallon ziploc bags, make storage a somewhat easier. Most years a put up fifteen to twenty bags
of satsuma juice.

I used to use ziplock on my Myers but once in a while, they would get a leak. I found some screw top plastic containers that work good but do take up more freezer space.
