So...a couple of months ago I was visiting my great grandparents' graves and I came across an unusual tree. After a bit of research, I determined that they were jujube trees. Well, as an urban forager there was no way I was letting this opportunity pass me up, so I spent several days gathering the fruits a couple of weeks ago. They promptly went into my freezer. Last night, I set them out to thaw and today I spent ALL day steam juicing them. We started around 1130 am and just finished up about an hour ago. 21 lbs of jujubes yielded just over a gallon of juice. Now normally when you run fruit through the steam juicer, they turn into colorless flat bits of skin and junk. Not this stuff. It got a bit wrinkled, but that was it. We just tasted one and there is plenty of gushy stuff and sweetness left. So I saved all the steamed bits and I'm freezing them as well. I'm thinking I will either boil in water and strain or chuck it in a strainer bag when I get ready to make...whatever with it. Now here is the astonishing part....the SG on the juice is just below 1.08. 1.08!! I had planned on making mead with this stuff, but with an SG that high before I even add a sugar source, I'm not sure how to proceed. For now, the juice is being frozen, so I've got time. Any suggestions?
