DSCN0762 (1).jpgThat’s the name of an old machine I have, which they still make (about $100) which turns tomatoes into the finest tomato juice you can imagine. The book that comes with it has a nice recipe; celery, a bit of salt, and I forget what else. Just dropped your cooked tomatoes into the hopper and turn the crank. The juice and pulp comes out into a bowl, with the skins and seeds out the other end for compost. It can be a bit messy (not too bad), but you can save the juice all winter or longer in canning jars.

We have labels made and give it to friends. Cheers!DSCN0221 (1)
