Let There Be Juice

Our friends Misty and Andrew of Geek Farm Life http://geekfarmlife.com/ are leaving their Indiana Farm for new adventures in Australia.  We will miss them.  In a win-win, we purchased many pieces of  “farm equipment” that we did not have and were on on wish list.  One is the Excalibur food dehydrator I have already blogged about–and which is currently hard at work drying apples.  Another is a lovely stainless steel steam juicer.  I got up at 6 today and made 10 quarts of grape juice from a gorgeous basket of Concords purchased at the market yesterday.  Here is the process:

 
The Juicer--3 stacked parts

part two--collects the juice and this is where the hose attaches
