ed, thanks for this...  so to be clear about this.  are you saying but the berries in a big container (not in a fruit bag), pour the boiling water over them. then drain the fluid thru a strainer.  how long do you steep this before you separate?   Id love to find a more successful way to extract since using paint thinner to clean the glass wear is definitely not an option for me.  mIEKAL wrote:

The "green gunk" comes from the berries, when they are crushed in making wine. It it very hard to clean. I found that mineral spirits or paint thinner would work. The best thing is to avoid it. I now strip the berries from the heads and pout boiling water over them to extract  the juice. Seems to work much better.
