The "no-work" method-
The fastest easiest way to extract pure seed-free juice - no cranking peeling pressing pitting or straining!
- Drop any soft-skinned fruit or vegetable into the fruit basket and add sugar to taste (if desired). Grapes or berries can be left whole on the stem but apples should be sliced (no need to core).
- Fill water kettle put steamer on your range or wood stove and put up your feet.
- In about an hour the steam will cook about three to five quarts of juice out of the fruit. Chill and drink or bottle and store. (Many kinds can be diluted by up to half and usually need little sugar.)
Snug-fitting parts prevent steam from escaping and lower-seated drain hose lets you draw out more juice without having to tip the juicer (a pretty clumsy task).
Proven effective in generations of use in Finland-Gentle steam heat (around 165 degrees) and moisture extract nearly all the juice from any soft fruit or vegetable. The vitamins are left intact and the only waste is a nearly dry mostly colorless pulp. (It makes excellent compost.) No moving parts to break.
Juice is safe for long-term storage-Steam heat eliminates bacteria and germs so juice cannot ferment. (We've stored ours for as long as five years before drinking.)
Doubles as steam-cooker-Use it year around for any type of meat or vegetable! Steam cookery retains valuable nutrients and delicate flavors. Liquids that collect can be used in broths soups or sauces.
