Some purchases in life are a bargain, at any price.....The Mehu-Lisii
stainless steel juicer- steamer is one such item. Especially if you can
find the double bottom pan. It will last many years, if you make sure
to always keep water in the bottom unit. Grape juice is concentrated,
and is exquisite. Apple juice renders a bit too much like syrup for my
taste. I much prefer the Harmony Vally Double Tub fruit press for the
job of sweet cider.
I found both my juicer and the cider press at Lehman's.com.
The original inspiration for my juicer was a visit from the local vet,
during which he described a juicer his wife and he simply pinched a
release clip on a filler tube, and out came piping-hot grape juice to
fill qt. canning jars with concentrate. He claimed that they placed a
sterile lid and ring on the hot jars, and within an hour, all sealed.
He was right! We have done it many times! Although it's so easy and
fun, it almost feels like you are stealing. To think that you are
storing away all that great flavor and nutrition, for the price of a lid
and a small amount of fuel. I seem to recall reading that this
process is not 'USDA' approved for long-term storeage. I couldn't
comment on that, but I know it works in my pantry until the holidays,
then I run out of juice and vow to plant a few more vines. Good luck
with your enterprise.
