I am interested in hearing others experiences using juicer machines . Likes, Dislikes, good for this and bad for that stories. Here is my my story. I recently had one of my giant brainstorms being the brainy person that I am. Well, maybe not so brainy since most of my brainstorms usually endup just being little rain showers. Anyways. I bought a Jack LaLanne power juicer with thoughts of using it to extract juice from grapes for my wine making. I was very disappointed with the finished product. The juicer worked great, it groundup all the grapes and spit out plenty of juice, problem was, all the hulls I really needed for color and flavor, and all the seeds, where ejected out the back of the juicer, not exactly what I had in mine when I bought the juicer. Needless to say, I gave up on using the juicer for making grape wine. On the other hand, I tried the juicer on some cored apples and even though the juicer seperated the juice from most of the heavy pulp, I was able to recombine the juice and pulp for placing in the primary wine bucket. I guess if you are going to make wine, the juicer works OK for some fruits and not so good on others. For just plain apple juice, its perfect straight out of the juicer. My next experiment was today on tomatoes. We had tons of Roman and Golden jubilees we needed to do something with. I washed the "Maters" and cut the stem and blossom end off, as well as any bad places. I then quartered up everything that wouldnt fit whole into the top of the Juicer. One problem I encountered was the splashing. If you didnt feed the tomatoes and immediantly insert the plunger, the juice would splash out the top all over the cabinet top. Also, if feeding fast, the juice had a tendency to spray out of the discharge shute. A well placed hand pretty much kept control of the spraying. The "Mater" juice turned out excellent. Real pulpie and smooth. The heavier pulp, seeds, and larger pieces of skins where discharged out the back into the catch container, but you could also see some juice mixed in with it. We dumped the material into a pot and will see if it turns into anything usable. The juice on the otherhand is ready to can straight out of the juicer. It contains enough pulp to make a excellent sauce and I am thinking about trying to make Ketchup once I look up a good receipe. Post you own experiences, as well as any favorite receipes. I have just started playing with mineand would really like to hear what others have done.
